Acanthocyte abnormal red blood cells, illustration - stock illustration

Acanthocytes. Illustration of abnormal red blood cells known as spur cells or acanthocytes. Red blood cells with this appearance can occur in association with a rare condition called abetalipoproteinemia, as well as in liver disease, chorea acanthocytosis, several inherited neurological disorders, anorexia nervosa, hypothyroidism, alcoholism, and other disorders. The deformed cells are destroyed prematurely, primarily in the spleen, resulting in anaemia.
