    I didn't think you would see hemolytic anemia in beta thalassemia, but I just did a UW question that you had to know this. As far as I know when it comes to hemolytic anemia, I always think of some kinds of autoimmune, PNH, G6PD def etc....

    Can anyone explain why you would get hemolytic anemia in beta-thalassemia. I don't really recall this from Pathoma either. What am I missing here? Thank you for the help.

    Robbins has a very concise explanation for this on pg. 414 of the 9th edition:
