Intraavascular, Hp, and Hp When the membrane of erythrocytes rupture, they release their hemoglobin into the plasma. The hemoglobin that is filtered into urine also gets taken up by the untravascular tubules. The dog concurrently had marked hemoglobinuria as shown in the image to the right. Conjugated bilirubin is excreted into the gastrointestinal tract where it is converted to urobilinogen and eventually excreted in the feces as stercobilinogen. It results in acute kidney injury because free hemoglobin is nephrotoxic.

Extravascular hemolysis occurs when RBCs are phagocytized by macrophages in the spleen, liver and bone marrow see image of an erythrophage to the right. Reticulocyte index Haptoglobin Mentzer index.

This gene encodes a preproprotein that is processed to yield both alpha and beta chains, which subsequently combines as a tetramer to produce haptoglobin. Note that such hemolysis will interfere with clinical pathologic test results, including hemogram results.

Bruns Beitr Klin Chir in German. In addition, the haptoglobin gene is expressed in murine and human adipose tissue. Mean corpuscular hemoglobin Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration Mean corpuscular volume Red blood cell distribution width. We also see hemoglobinemia in all samples collected from the patient EDTA, clot tube, heparin, citrate — depending on the tests requested. Mechanisms and causes of non-regenerative anemia have been reviewed Grimes and Fry Lactic dehydrogenase LDH is greatly elevated in patients with intravascular hemolysis.


Hemoglobinuria indicates severe intravascular hemolysis overwhelming the absorptive capacity of the renal tubular cells. The test is also commonly ordered as a hemolytic anemia battery, which also includes a reticulocyte count and a peripheral blood smear.

However, if the animal is anemic and has hemoglobinuria, true intravascular hemolysis, i. We frequently see more hemolysis in serum samples than plasma samples, because RBCs are ruptured manually during removal of serum from the clot.

In some small animal patients with hemolytic anemia particularly dogs with immune-mediated hemolytic anemiaconjugated bilirubin may dominate because of concurrent cholestasis mechanisms, unclearhowever unconjugated bilirubin will still be increased. Euglobulin lysis time D-dimer.

Hemoglobin-haptoglobin is cleared almost immediately from the plasma by hepatic reticuloendothelial cells. If the reticulocyte count is increased, but the haptoglobin level is normal, this may indicate that cellular destruction is occurring in the spleen and liverwhich may indicate a drug-induced hemolysisor a red cell dysplasia.

Pathology Thread

Extravascular hemolysis is characterized by spherocytes. In intravascular hemolysis, free hemoglobin will be released into circulation and hence haptoglobin will bind the hemoglobin.

Hp is absent in at least some amphibians Xenopus and neognathous birds chicken and goose. Recent reports have shown that both extravascular hemolysis and incomplete C5 blockade can explain these suboptimal hematological responses. Free hemoglobin in plasma scavenges nitric oxide which is an important vasodilator of the renal medulla the part of the kidney that works the hardest.

The actin – spectrin – 4. This results in renal ischemia and acute tubular injury or necrosis. An unexpectedly low or inadequate regenerative response in an anemia that is primarily due to hemorrhage or hemolysis should prompt a search for underlying causes of bone marrow suppression, e.

Assessment of regeneration is the first step in working up an anemia and helps identify the mechanism for an anemia. Artifactual hemolysis results from poor venipuncture technique, prolonged blood storage, exposure to temperature extremes hot or cold enough to freeze the cellsand certain anticoagulants fluoride-oxalate will cause artifactual red blood cell lysis.


Haptoglobin – Wikipedia

Hemolysis is the premature destruction of RBCs due to intrinsic inherited defects in the RBCs or because of acquired intravascular abnormalities. Hp exists in two allelic forms in the human intravxscular, so-called Hp1 and Hp2the latter one having arisen due to the partial duplication of Hp1 gene.

After haptoglobin is saturated, excess hemoglobin is filtered in the kidney and reabsorbed in the proximal tubules where the iron is recovered and converted into ferritin or hemosiderin. Haptoglobin had been shown to be expressed in adipose tissue of cattle as well.


Amino acids from the globin chains are recycled and the Fe removed from the heme and reused. Ultimately, distinction between hemorrhage and hemolysis requires documentation of a source of bleeding and a decision by the clinician as to whether this is serious or severe enough to result in the anemia frequently extrvascular judgement call.

Note that additional tests may be required to document hemorrhage, e. Oxidant-induced hemolytic anemia in a cat. However, we can only make this conclusion, if we rule out in vitro false hemolysis first.

As haptoglobin is indeed an acute-phase proteinany inflammatory process infection, extreme stress, burns, major crush injury, allergy, etc. However, treatment responses are reported heterogeneous with some patients presenting residual hemolysis and requiring RBC transfusions. We also show that continuous alternative pathway activation in eculizumab-treated individuals carrying the CR1-L allele uemolisis in abnormally decreased levels of C3 in plasma that could, potentially, increase their susceptibility to bacterial infections.

Note that many animals have anemia due to multifactorial causes e.
