There is very little information available on how best to manage patient with multiple pregnancy and sickle cell disease. A Gravida2 Para1, 30 year-old female known patient with sickle cell disease, complicated with multiple pregnancy, and previous history of caesarean section, presented with anemia for which she was transfused. In the course of treatment she ruptured membranes, in view of this; a repeat caesarean section was performed. Operation was complicated with uterine atony and bleeding hence hysterectomy was done. Post-operative was unremarkable. Anemia is one of the major complications in a patient with sickle cell complicated with multiple gestation, hence prophylactic blood transfusion is recommended. © Internet Scientific Publications, LLC., 1996 to 2010.
