Abstract Four patients on regular dialysis therapy were incapacitated by anæmia not responding to adequate dialysis. Infection, deficiency states, and blood-loss could not be implicated as the cause of the anæmia, and since there was evidence of extracorpuscular hæmolysis with excessive splenic activity, splenectomy was performed. All four patients had symptomatic relief maintained for 11-21 months after operation.
