In brief: Red cell breakdown

It refers to a decreased number of red cells in the circulation due to a destructive process.
There are many causes of this problem, including drugs, autoimmune conditions, hereditary disorders, infections, malfunctioning cardiac valves, and cancer. Treatment has to do with the specific cause of the breakdown.
