Ce phénomène est particulièrement visible lors d'une poussée de fièvre : à cause du décalage entre la valeur réelle et la valeur de référence, brusquement augmentée, la déperdition de chaleur va être abaissée grâce à une diminution de la circulation cutanée provoquant ainsi un refroidissement de la peau (sensation de froid). Par ailleurs, la production de chaleur sera augmentée par des frissons {fièvre accompagnée de frissons). Ceci va se prolonger jusqu'à ce que la valeur réelle (—> A5, courbe rouge) se soit ajustée à l'élévation de la valeur de référence (plateau).

Elle est due à l'absence de certaines protéines membranaires qui participent à la régulation du complément (voir en particulier DAF. decay accelerating factor ', —> A5). Une activation du complément se termine par une perforation de la membrane érythrocytaire. On ignore pourquoi l'hémolyse a lieu surtout pendant la nuit. On trouvera parmi les causes des anémies hémolytiques extracorpusculaires : • des causes mécaniques comme une altération des érythrocytes due à une collision avec une valvule cardiaque artificielle ou des prothèses vasculaires, en particulier lorsque le débit cardiaque est important ; • des causes immunologiques, par exemple à la suite d'une erreur de transfusion, ou lors d'une incompatibilité Rhésus entre la mère et son enfant ; • des toxines comme par exemple certains venins de serpent.

Besoins accrus en f e r (croissance, grossesse, allaitement) ; • déficience en apotransferrine (rare). Une surcharge en fer de l'organisme peut entraîner des lésions au niveau du foie, du pancréas et du myocarde (entre autres) : hémochromatoses (-> p. 252). Anémies hémolytiques Les érythrocytes ne peuvent atteindre leur durée de vie normale que lorsque leur déformabilité, leur résistance osmotique et mécanique, leur potentiel réducteur et leur approvisionnement en énergie sont normaux (—> p.
