G6PD enzyme deficiency
A genetic disorder that runs in families, in which red blood cells, the cells that carry oxygen to the tissues, break down prematurely. This leads to anemia, or low red blood cell count, and its associated complications. 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.
