Hemolytic Anemia – Red Blood Cell Pathology (RBC)

by Carlo Raj, MD

Hemolytic anemia is defined by lysis, or destruction, of red blood cells. It leads to a decrease in hemoglobin levels and a compensatory increase in bone marrow activation to replete them. There are numerous causes of hemolytic anemia, which can be acute or chronic, immune-mediated or non-immune-mediated, intravascular or extravascular, inherited or acquired, and intracorpuscular or extracorpuscular. These disorders may indicate life-threatening pathology, and a standardized approach to evaluation and management is important for prompt diagnosis and treatment.
