Participants with microcytosis (Mean corpuscular volume [MCV]<80 fl) and Haemoglobin Subunit Alpha 2 )HbA2) levels of 3.4-7.5 % were labelled as BTT; age and gender-specific serum ferritin levels were used for categorisation of participants to iron-deficient, normal or high-ferritin groups (Males: 17-230ng/ml; Females: 14-150ng/ml).
In this study we observed that out of nonanemic children (having Hb > 11.0 g/dl), microcytosis was seen in 107 (22.6%) cases while hypochromia was present in 72 (15.2%) children.
Microcytosis was observed in 28/130 (22%) and macrocytosis in 3/130 (2%) of the patients.
Again, the high Hb [A.sub.2] level was discordant with minimal or absent microcytosis and hypochromia.

It also revealed anisocytosis, microcytosis, and hypochromia; white blood cells were leucocytes 9700/[mm.sup.3], banded neutrophils 6%, segmented neutrophils 76%, and lymphocytes 10%.
Among the most common causes of anemia in the course of T1D in children is iron deficiency, which will present as anemia with microcytosis in the blood count.
Of note on the full blood count were polycythemia, microcytosis, and thrombocytopenia, with a hemoglobin of 17.1 g/dL, mean corpuscular volume of 67.5 fL, and platelet count of 100 x 109/L.
At approximately 16 months of age, a complete blood count (CBC) showed a platelet count of 104,000/uL, increased red cell distribution width (RDW, 17.1%), anisocytosis, and microcytosis. Around 20 months of age, the infant was brought to the emergency department for epistaxis.
Some women with iron deficiency due to bariatric surgery or malabsorption also have vitamin B12 and, less commonly, folate deficiency, which can contribute to the development of anemia (see "Diagnosis of anemia, iron deficiency, and iron deficiency anemia in pregnancy.") Clinicians are often advised that a mean corpuscular volume demonstrating microcytosis is the "best test" to assess a patient for iron deficiency.
The RET_He uses the mean cell volume (MCV) and so results can be affected when there is microcytosis unrelated to IDA, such as, in double RBC populations, in cases of RBC aggregation and when there is hyper or hyponatraemia (12).
In addition, the carrier frequency of the [alpha][alpha][alpha]anti3.7 triplication or quadruplication has been reported to be 2.14% in individuals with normal hematological indices and 1.7% in individuals with mild microcytosis (14).

Arsenic-induced echinocytic transformation of erythrocyte was confirmed by SEM analysis, which showed distinct membrane blebbing, increased number of spherocytes and microcytosis, but these were almost absent in the control group (figure 2A and B).
