Hemolytic Anemia

Hemolytic anemia is a blood disorder that occurs when red blood cells are destroyed faster than the bone marrow can make them. There are two types of hemolytic anemia: intrinsic, which is inherited, and extrinsic which can be caused by certain infections, medications or autoimmune disorders.
