Heinz body anemias

Common Name(s)

Heinz body anemias

This is a form of nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia of Dacie type I (in vitro autohemolysis is not corrected by added glucose). After splenectomy, which has little benefit, basophilic inclusions called Heinz bodies are demonstrable in the erythrocytes. Before splenectomy, diffuse or punctate basophilia may be evident. Most of these cases are probably instances of hemoglobinopathy. The hemoglobin demonstrates heat lability. Heinz bodies are observed also with the Ivemark syndrome (asplenia with cardiovascular anomalies; {208530}).
