HE is caused by abnormalities of proteins involved in the red hereditarua membrane horizontal skeletal network including the spectrin dimer-dimer interaction or the spectrin-actin-protein 4.

Differential diagnosis Differential diagnoses include other acquired causes of elliptocytic or fragmented red cells i. The mean corpuscular volume in HPP is of fL and marked poikilocytosis and red cell fragmentation is present. Hereditary elliptocytosis is a disorder passed down through families in which the red blood cells eluptocitosis abnormally shaped.

Elliptocytosis is often harmless. Red blood cell membrane disorders. This is more like to happen when they have a viral infection.

The HPP variant is characterized by severe, transfusion-dependent hemolytic anemia with onset in infancy and that can also manifest with neonatal jaundice.

May continue for a long time in a newborn. Specialised Social Services Eurordis directory. HE can present at any age and the clinical picture is heterogeneous.

Heterozygous mutations usually result in common HE. Disease definition Hereditary elliptocytosis HE is a rare clinically and genetically heterogeneous disorder of the red cell membrane characterized by manifestations ranging from mild to severe transfusion-dependent hemolytic anemia but with the majority of patients being asymptomatic. There is no treatment needed for the disorder unless severe anemia or anemia symptoms occur. Only comments written in English can be processed. Summary and related texts.


Detailed information Professionals Summary information Suomipdf Polskipdf. Most people with hereditary elliptocytosis have no problems. However, some people may have crises in which the red blood cells rupture. An exam by your health care provider may show an enlarged spleen. Complete blood count CBC may show anemia or signs of red blood cell destruction. Basic Principles and Practice. Goldman L, Schafer AI, eds. Etiology HE is caused by abnormalities of proteins involved in the red cell membrane horizontal skeletal network including the spectrin dimer-dimer interaction or the spectrin-actin-protein 4.

Since HE is very rarely life threatening, eliptocitosiz diagnosis is not necessary, except for Eliptocitosks cases, where screening for low expression polymorphism i. Lactate dehydrogenase level may be high.

Antenatal diagnosis Since HE is very rarely life threatening, antenatal diagnosis is not necessary, except for HPP cases, where screening for low expression polymorphism i. Hydrops fetalis see this term may be seen in rare cases. Complications that can occur due to severe anemia include growth retardation, frontal bossing, marked splenomegaly and early gallbladder disease.

Patients should hereditaroa monitored during events known to precipitate hemolysis.

HPP is also due to the presence of one alpha-spectrin mutation in trans to a low-expression alpha-spectrin allele alpha-LELY.
