    Background Hemoglobin Shepherds Bush (Human Genome Variation Society name: HBB:c.224G > A) is an unstable hemoglobin variant resulting from a β 74 GGC to GAC mutation (Gly to Asp) that manifests clinically as hemolytic anemia or gall bladder disease due to chronic subclinical hemolysis.

    Background: Cold agglutinins are IgM autoantibodies, which are often detected incidentally. They are rarely pathogenic. Natural cold autoantibodies occur in titers less than 1:64 measured at 4°C and have no activity at temperature higher than 22°C, However pathogenic cold agglutinins...

    The article discusses the study on hemolytic anemia, which can be caused by drugs. A case report of a patient with severe intravascular hemolysis, wherein it was suspected due to his inhalation of amyl nitrite, is presented. It has been found out during the investigation that the measurement of...

    Several diseases, such as malaria, sickle cell disease, and ischemia/reperfusion may cause excessive formation of hemin, which may in turn trigger hemolysis. A variety of drugs and diseases leading to hemolysis triggers suicidal erythrocyte death or eryptosis, i.e., cell membrane scrambling and...
