A genetic disorder that runs in families, in which red blood cells, the cells that carry oxygen to the tissues, break down prematurely.

It is caused by a defect in a particular enzyme, glucose-6 phosphate dehydrogenase, and symptoms are often triggered by certain events such as ingestion of fava beans.
