Abstract

Acute Intravascular Hemolysis Triggered by Herbal Remedy

Red blood cells (RBC) have several protective mechanisms to prevent oxidative stress. One such mechanism is the Glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase enzyme (G6PD). G6PD deficiency is the most common enzyme deficiency in the world. 7.5% of the world’s population have either one or two gene mutations for G6PD deficiency. Since the gene for the enzyme is located on the X chromosome in the long arm, males are generally heterozygous and women can be normal, heterozygous or homozygous.
