  • Sideroblastic
  • In contrast, the MCV is usually high in the much more common acquired sideroblastic anemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • The following genes encode enzymes that catalyze the various steps in the heme biosynthetic pathway: ALAD: aminolevulinate, delta-, dehydratase ALAS1: aminolevulinate, delta-, synthase 1 ALAS2: aminolevulinate, delta-, synthase 2 (sideroblastic/hypochromic anemia) CPOX: coproporphyrinogen oxidase FECH: ferrochelatase (protoporphyria) HMBS: hydroxymethylbilane synthase PPOX: protoporphyrinogen oxidase UROD: uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase UROS: uroporphyrinogen III synthase (congenital erythropoietic porphyria) Variegate porphyria is caused by mutations in the PPOX gene.

  • Symptoms
  • The most common symptoms of this type of anemia are dizziness, tiredness, lack of energy, fatigue, decreased stamina, pale skin and other membranes. (epainassist.com)
  • Symptoms include weakness, anemia, and a coppery skin discoloration A later finding, usually after kidney failure occurs, is transitional cancer of urothelial tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • Their contribution to the understanding of this unusual endemic disease of the kidneys was their description of symptoms which were not typical of common chronic nephritis, i.e., incidence only in adults (no children affected), absence of high blood pressure, xanthochromia of palms and soles (Tanchev's sign), early hypochromic anemia, absence of proteinuria, and slow progression of kidney failure.

  • Anemia that comes on quickly often has greater symptoms, including: confusion, feeling like one is going to pass out, and increased thirst. (wikipedia.org)
  • sickle cell a
  • This type of anemia includes sickle cell anemia, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), hemolytic uremic syndrome, aortic valve prosthesis, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), cold agglutinin disease, and paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria (PCH). (medscape.com)
  • etiology
  • The etiology of myelophthisic anemia involves interruption of normal hematopoiesis due to the accumulation of malignant or reactive cells or cell products. (medscape.com)
  • hepatic
  • The presentation of this disorder entails anemia, arthritis, hepatic anomalies, and recurrent infections are clinical signs of the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Define
  • The true incidence of anemia is difficult to define because of multiple factors (eg, patient population, geographic location, normal range reference, ability to adequately screen for the disease). (medscape.com)
