Haemolytic Anaemia

Description

Haemolytic anaemia is a form of anaemia due to haemolysis, the abnormal breakdown of red blood cells (RBCs), either in the blood vessels (intravascular hemolysis) or elsewhere in the human body (extravascular). It has numerous possible causes, ranging from relatively harmless to life-threatening. The general classification of haemolytic anemia is either inherited or acquired. Treatment depends on the cause and nature of the breakdown.

 
Symptoms of haemolytic anemia are similar to other forms of anaemia (fatigue and shortness of breath), but in addition, the breakdown of red cells leads to jaundice and increases the risk of particular long-term complications, such as gallstones and pulmonary hypertension. Source: Wikipedia
