is very useful in picking up cases who have low MCV and MCH and require confirmatory tests like serum ferritin and HbA2 estimation.
This patient was diagnosed with microcytic hypochromic
anemia characterized by production of RBCs that are smaller than normal.
The second most common type of anemia was microcytic hypochromic
anemia, with its frequency noted to be 20% and 18% in overt and subclinical hypothyroid patients.
red cells were identified and recorded based on their small size and pale staining characteristics.
Complete blood cell count showed leukocytosis (12,430 cells/mmc) and severe microcytic hypochromic
anaemia (Hb=6.9 mg/dL, Hct=25.2%, MCV=70.8 fL, and MCHC=27.4 g/dL).
Her laboratory data were significant for mild neutrophilic leukocytosis of 14.6 x [10.sup.6]/microL, stable microcytic hypochromic
anemia of 10.4g/dl, and stable hyponatremia of 131mmol/L.
The patient's blood group was O positive, with hemoglobin of 6.6 g/dl microcytic hypochromic
After admission, a CBC revealed a microcytic hypochromic
anemia, with a WBC count of 8.4x109/L, a HGB level of 60g/L, a MCV of 71fl, a MCH of 27pg/L, and a PLT count of 397x109/L.
A 71-year-old male patient with abdominal pain, vomiting, and loss of appetite was examined due to microcytic hypochromic
anemia, and a tumoral mass was detected in the antrumcorpus of the stomach.
Investigation showed microcytic hypochromic
anemia (Hb 8.0 g/dl), raised ESR (70mm/1hr), low serum albumin (2.1g/dl) and total protein (4.3g/dl).
Initial investigations showed microcytic hypochromic
anaemia with a haemoglobin of 9.8g/dL and mean cell volume of 75.2 fL.
Laboratory tests indicated the presence of microcytic hypochromic
iron deficiency anemia and mild elevation in her liver function enzymes.
Peripheral smear study reveals microcytic hypochromic
The study population comprised microcytic hypochromic
anaemia patients referred for Hb electrophoresis to the GMC pathology lab.
