Introduction

Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disease that mainly affects the black population. In the course of the disease, several clinical complications and repeated hospitalizations may happen.

Objective

To describe the hospitalization costs for sickle cell anemia complications in the state of Bahia, from 2008 to 2014.

Methods

Descriptive study using secondary data. The study population was composed of all patients hospitalized for sickle cell anemia.

Results

Data collection and analysis were carried out according to the Division of Health macro-regions of the state of Bahia; 8.103 hospitalizations recorded in the SIH-SUS were analyzed. There was a predominance of males and aged between 5 and 14 years. The Eastern Health macro-region had the largest number of hospitalizations for sickle cell anemia (33.4%) and the largest total expenditure; the Southern macro-region had the higher coefficient of hospitalization; and the Extreme Southern macro-region presented the higher fatality rate. The Eastern and Southern macro-regions had the largest expenditures: 18.9% and 40.5%, respectively.
