Hereditary Elliptocytosis (HE) is a heterogeneous group of inherited Red Blood Cell (RBC) disorders characterized by the presence of elongated, oval, or elliptically shaped RBCs on the peripheral blood smear. Hemolytic anemia in these disorders ranges from absent to life-threatening. Transient hemolytic anemia has been reported in neonates with some of the more severe HE syndromes. We will present a newborn with acute hemolysis anemia who experienced recurrent hemolysis with a strong positive family history of anemia and one mortality because of hydrops fetalis due to severe hemolysis.
