The most frequent causes of hemolytic anemias are immune or infectious diseases, drug induced hemolysis, thrombotic microangiopathies, hereditary spherocytosis, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase or pyruvate kinase deficiencies, thalassemia's and sickle cell disease. Sometimes no cause is found because a rarer etiology is involved. The goal of this review is to remember some unfrequent constitutional or acquired causes and to point out difficulties to avoid wrong interpretations of analysis results.
