There are intrinsic and extrinsic causes that may result in haemolytic anaemia:
- Defects in erythrocyte membranes
- Defects in haemoglobin
- Defects in erythrocyte metabolic pathways
- Immune-mediated causes such as autoimmune haemolytic anaemia
- Lead poisoning
- Runners' macrocytosis (enlargement of red blood cells with near-constant haemoglobin concentration)
