Non-hereditary spherocytic anemia: Introduction

These abnormal cells are broken down prematurely resulting in a shortage of red blood cells (anemia). The blood condition may result from such things as acute, widespread burns to the body, low blood phosphate levels, Zieve's syndrome and toxins from poisonous snakes, spiders and insects. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Non-hereditary spherocytic anemia is available below.
