Elliptocytosis 1: Introduction

Elliptocytosis 1: An inherited blood disorder where a significant number of red blood cells (erythrocytes) are elliptical or oval shaped rather than doughnut shaped. Anemia results when the abnormal red blood cells are destroyed. The severity of the anemia is variable with some cases resulting in fetal death and others being relatively asymptomatic. Type 1 is caused by a defect in the gene on chromosome 1p36.2-p34 for a protein in the red cell membrane.
