  • Alloimmunization is common in patients with sickle cell disease and may complicate transfusion therapy.
  • Patient phenotyping and prophylactic matching to reduce alloimmunization is recommended.
  • Transfusion requirements and the presence or absence of red cell antibodies influence recommendations on the extent of phenotyping for patients with sickle cell disease.
  • Limited evidence exists on the impact of the storage age of blood in this population, but provision of fresh units imposes significant challenges and may compromise availability of optimally phenotype-matched units.
