Human genes for hereditary spherocytosis
Hereditary spherocytosis [DOID:12971]
Hereditary spherocytosis is a genetically-transmitted (autosomal dominant) form of spherocytosis, an auto-hemolytic anemia characterized by the production of red blood cells that are sphere-shaped rather than bi-concave disk shaped (Donut-Shaped), and therefore more prone to hemolysis. Howell-Jolly bodies may be seen.
