In massive acute intravascular hemolysis (-> B ) haptoglobin is, however, overloaded and free Hb is filtered in the kidneys (-» p. 44 ). This results not only in hemoglobinuria ( dark urine ), but can also lead to acute renal failure through tubular occlusion (-» p. 118 ). Chronic hemoglo binuria additionally causes Fe deficiency anemia , cardiac output rises and the resulting mechanical hemolysis creates a vicious circle ( -» B ).
