ABSTRACT

Out of total sample of the study 72.7 % adolescents were homozygous and 76.7 % were heterozygous. Male and females of Age group 14-16 years were maximum number. Percentage of heterozygous males complaining somatic problems is higher, whereas percentage of homozygous females complaining somatic problems is high. There is significant positive relationship between Maladaptive coping style and somatic problems. Somatic problems emerge as significant predictor in variation of criterion variable somatic problems. The t values explain significant difference in somatic complaints among sickle cell adolescents with respect to gender and zygosity.
