The significant paraclinical investigations consisted of an inflammatory syndrome (ESR = 51 mm/h, fibrinogen = 600 mg%), normochromic anemia
(RBC of 2.
The hematological profile showed a normocytic, normochromic anemia
with mild reticulocytosis, which has also been documented by other scientists and the etiology is attributed to the persistent, progressive, chronic inflammation and chronic renal insufficiency.
The majority of the anemic cases in this study had normocytic normochromic anemia
CBC shows either normocytic normochromic anemia
or macrocytic anemia, with Nucleated RBCs and high reticulocyte count.
20,21) This normocytic and normochromic anemia
has been described in many chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, renal failure, bacterial and parasitic infections, and chronic periodontitis, among others.
Peripheral blood smear and other laboratory testing revealed a normocytic normochromic anemia
, marked rouleaux formation, and elevated protein levels (with an IgA-kappa light chain monoclonal spike on protein electrophoresis).
Laboratory investigations showed normocytic normochromic anemia
, white blood count 7530/[mm.
The patient's CBC in 2009 (Table 2) shows a normocytic, normochromic anemia
A normocytic, normochromic anemia
of chronic disease was noted with a hemoglobin of 10 g/dL.

Her blood picture revealed normocytic normochromic anemia
with rouleux formation and no evidence of any haemoparasite.
In patients with CRI, the diseased kidneys are typically unable to secrete an appropriate quantity of erythropoietin, and a normocytic, normochromic anemia
results--decreased production of erythropoietin parallels the deterioration in renal function.
3]) and features consistent with a normocytic, normochromic anemia
characteristic of acute blood loss with a mean hematocrit of 27.
In our study, nonnocytic normochromic anemia
was found in 2260 (47.
