haemoglobinuria

Free HAEMOGLOBIN in the urine. This rare event occurs when large quantities of haemoglobin have been released from the red cells in the blood, as in severe MALARIA, causing the complication ‘blackwater fever’ or other forms of HAEMOLYTIC ANAEMIA. The free haemoglobin is able to pass through the kidneys into the urine. Compare HAEMATURIA.

The clinical signs of haemoglobinuria occur at the peak of haemolytic crisis, leading to decreased values of Hb, PCV, TEC and immediately after haemolytic crisis, a brief lymphocytosis and monocytosis combine to cause leukocytosis (Gungi et al., 2016).
Serious causes include UTI, pyelonephritis, nephrolithiasis, menstruation, malignancy, BPH, trauma, renal disease, catheterisation, iatrogenic, ibuprofen, rifampicin, warfarin, haemolytic anaemia, sickle cell, thalassaemia, TTP, ITP, transfusion reaction, porphyria, and haemoglobinuria; however, it can be caused by things as harmless as beets, carrots, and blackberries.

Babesiosis or tick fever, is a febrile disease of domestic and wild animals characterized by extensive erythrocytic lysis leading to anaemia, icterus and haemoglobinuria. The disease is caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Babesia, an intraerythrocytic protozoan parasite transmitted mainly by R.
This disease was not known to occur in Australia until 1976 and since then the disease has been common in South America, U.S.A., France, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Greece and Italy [9].The initial signs associated with babesiosis are rise in temperature, anemia, haemoglobinuria, malaise, depression, in appetence and poor performance of game horses.
