Abstract

  • Drug-induced haemolytic anaemia is rare, but can be a life-threatening event in susceptible individuals.
  • The mechanisms of drug-induced haemolysis are either immune mediated or by oxidative haemolysis (typically in G6PD-deficient individuals or by causing methaemoglobinaemia).
  • The mainstay of treatment is discontinuation and avoidance of the offending drugs.
