Definition of Hemolytic anemia
Hemolytic anemia: Anemia due to the destruction, rather than underproduction, of red blood cells. Hemolytic anemia can result from a medication reaction, from the immune system attacking the red blood cells (autoimmune hemolytic anemia), from destruction of blood cells passing through diseased heart valves, and other causes.Source: MedTerms™ Medical Dictionary
