    Abstract

    Diazoxide, an agent used occasionally in the control of hypertension, has been associated with three haemolytic episodes in one patient. It is suggested that the mode of action is similar to that of diaminodiphenyl sulphone (dapsone) in acting as an oxidant stress to the ageing erythrocyte.
