In SCD, red blood cells (RBCs) that carry oxygen lose their flexibility and typical round shape, and become rigid with a distinctive “sickle” shape that make their passage through blood vessels more difficult.

Typically red blood cells are formed like a circular shape. This gives them the adaptability to go through even the tiniest veins.
