Example text

Haemolytic anaemias due to defects outside the red cells fall into three main groups. First are disorders in which red cells are destroyed by buffeting (by artificial surfaces such as replacement heart valves, abnormal blood-vessel linings, or a blood clot in a vessel, for example). In the second group, the red cells are destroyed by the immune system. Immune haemolytic anaemias may occur if foreign blood cells enter the bloodstream, as occurs in an incompatible blood transfusion, or they may be due to an autoimmune disorder (in which the immune system attacks the body’s own tissues).

Localized alopecia may be the result of permanent skin damage (for example, following burns or radiotherapy) or of trauma to the hair roots by styling or, rarely, trichotillomania (a disorder in which sufferers pull out their hair). The most common type of localized hair loss is alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder (in which the immune system attacks the body’s own tissues). There is no specific treatment for alopecia areata, but the hair usually regrows within a few months. Alopecia universalis is a rare, permanent form of alopecia areata that causes loss of all hair on the scalp and body, including the eyelashes and ALVEOLITIS eyebrows.

AFP can be measured in the maternal blood from the latter part of the first trimester of pregnancy, and its concentration rises between the 15th and 20th weeks.
