Anemia, Hypochromic: Anemia characterized by a decrease in the ratio of the weight of hemoglobin to the volume of the erythrocyte, i.e., the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration is less than normal. The individual cells contain less hemoglobin than they could have under optimal conditions. Hypochromic anemia may be caused by iron deficiency from a low iron intake, diminished iron absorption, or excessive iron loss. It can also be caused by infections or other diseases, therapeutic drugs, lead poisoning, and other conditions. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Miale, Laboratory Medicine: Hematology, 6th ed, p393)Anemia: A reduction in the number of circulating ERYTHROCYTES or in the quantity of HEMOGLOBIN.Erythrocyte Count: The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.Iron: A metallic element with atomic symbol Fe, atomic number 26, and atomic weight 55.85. It is an essential constituent of HEMOGLOBINS; CYTOCHROMES; and IRON-BINDING PROTEINS. It plays a role in cellular redox reactions and in the transport of OXYGEN.alpha-Globins: Members of the alpha-globin family. In humans, they are encoded in a gene cluster on CHROMOSOME 16. They include zeta-globin and alpha-globin. There are also pseudogenes of zeta (theta-zeta) and alpha (theta-alpha) in the cluster. Adult HEMOGLOBIN is comprised of 2 alpha-globin chains and 2 beta-globin chains.Anemia, Refractory: A severe sometimes chronic anemia, usually macrocytic in type, that does not respond to ordinary antianemic therapy.Hemoglobins: The oxygen-carrying proteins of ERYTHROCYTES. They are found in all vertebrates and some invertebrates. The number of globin subunits in the hemoglobin quaternary structure differs between species. Structures range from monomeric to a variety of multimeric arrangements.Anemia, Sideroblastic: Anemia characterized by the presence of erythroblasts containing excessive deposits of iron in the marrow.alpha-Thalassemia: A disorder characterized by reduced synthesis of the alpha chains of hemoglobin. The severity of this condition can vary from mild anemia to death, depending on the number of genes deleted.Erythropoietin: Glycoprotein hormone, secreted chiefly by the KIDNEY in the adult and the LIVER in the FETUS, that acts on erythroid stem cells of the BONE MARROW to stimulate proliferation and differentiation.Anemia, Iron-Deficiency: Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value. The erythrocytes are hypochromic and microcytic and the iron binding capacity is increased.Erythrocyte Indices: ERYTHROCYTE size and HEMOGLOBIN content or concentration, usually derived from ERYTHROCYTE COUNT; BLOOD hemoglobin concentration; and HEMATOCRIT. The indices include the mean corpuscular volume (MCV), the mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC).Anemia, Aplastic: A form of anemia in which the bone marrow fails to produce adequate numbers of peripheral blood elements.Ferritins: Iron-containing proteins that are widely distributed in animals, plants, and microorganisms. Their major function is to store IRON in a nontoxic bioavailable form. Each ferritin molecule consists of ferric iron in a hollow protein shell (APOFERRITINS) made of 24 subunits of various sequences depending on the species and tissue types.beta-Thalassemia: A disorder characterized by reduced synthesis of the beta chains of hemoglobin. There is retardation of hemoglobin A synthesis in the heterozygous form (thalassemia minor), which is asymptomatic, while in the homozygous form (thalassemia major, Cooley's anemia, Mediterranean anemia, erythroblastic anemia), which can result in severe complications and even death, hemoglobin A synthesis is absent.Erythropoiesis: The production of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES). In humans, erythrocytes are produced by the YOLK SAC in the first trimester; by the liver in the second trimester; by the BONE MARROW in the third trimester and after birth. In normal individuals, the erythrocyte count in the peripheral blood remains relatively constant implying a balance between the rate of erythrocyte production and rate of destruction.Anemia, Hemolytic: A condition of inadequate circulating red blood cells (ANEMIA) or insufficient HEMOGLOBIN due to premature destruction of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES).Protoporphyrins: Porphyrins with four methyl, two vinyl, and two propionic acid side chains attached to the pyrrole rings. Protoporphyrin IX occurs in hemoglobin, myoglobin, and most of the cytochromes.Transferrin: An iron-binding beta1-globulin that is synthesized in the LIVER and secreted into the blood. It plays a central role in the transport of IRON throughout the circulation. A variety of transferrin isoforms exist in humans, including some that are considered markers for specific disease states.Reticulocytes: Immature ERYTHROCYTES. In humans, these are ERYTHROID CELLS that have just undergone extrusion of their CELL NUCLEUS. They still contain some organelles that gradually decrease in number as the cells mature. RIBOSOMES are last to disappear. Certain staining techniques cause components of the ribosomes to precipitate into characteristic "reticulum" (not the same as the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM), hence the name reticulocytes.Erythrocytes, Abnormal: Oxygen-carrying RED BLOOD CELLS in mammalian blood that are abnormal in structure or function.Fanconi Anemia: Congenital disorder affecting all bone marrow elements, resulting in ANEMIA; LEUKOPENIA; and THROMBOPENIA, and associated with cardiac, renal, and limb malformations as well as dermal pigmentary changes. Spontaneous CHROMOSOME BREAKAGE is a feature of this disease along with predisposition to LEUKEMIA. There are at least 7 complementation groups in Fanconi anemia: FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCD1, FANCD2, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG, and FANCL. (from Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/dispomim.cgi?id=227650, August 20, 2004)Thalassemia: A group of hereditary hemolytic anemias in which there is decreased synthesis of one or more hemoglobin polypeptide chains. There are several genetic types with clinical pictures ranging from barely detectable hematologic abnormality to severe and fatal anemia.Hemoglobin H: An abnormal hemoglobin composed of four beta chains. It is caused by the reduced synthesis of the alpha chain. This abnormality results in ALPHA-THALASSEMIA.Erythrocytes: Red blood cells. Mature erythrocytes are non-nucleated, biconcave disks containing HEMOGLOBIN whose function is to transport OXYGEN.Anemia, Hemolytic, Autoimmune: Acquired hemolytic anemia due to the presence of AUTOANTIBODIES which agglutinate or lyse the patient's own RED BLOOD CELLS.Hepcidins: Forms of hepcidin, a cationic amphipathic peptide synthesized in the liver as a prepropeptide which is first processed into prohepcidin and then into the biologically active hepcidin forms, including in human the 20-, 22-, and 25-amino acid residue peptide forms. Hepcidin acts as a homeostatic regulators of iron metabolism and also possesses antimicrobial activity.Receptors, Transferrin: Membrane glycoproteins found in high concentrations on iron-utilizing cells. They specifically bind iron-bearing transferrin, are endocytosed with its ligand and then returned to the cell surface where transferrin without its iron is released.Anemia, Macrocytic: Anemia characterized by larger than normal erythrocytes, increased mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and increased mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH).Anemia, Pernicious: A megaloblastic anemia occurring in children but more commonly in later life, characterized by histamine-fast achlorhydria, in which the laboratory and clinical manifestations are based on malabsorption of vitamin B 12 due to a failure of the gastric mucosa to secrete adequate and potent intrinsic factor. (Dorland, 27th ed)Renal Dialysis: Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.Anemia, Sickle Cell: A disease characterized by chronic hemolytic anemia, episodic painful crises, and pathologic involvement of many organs. It is the clinical expression of homozygosity for hemoglobin S.Anemia, Megaloblastic: A disorder characterized by the presence of ANEMIA, abnormally large red blood cells (megalocytes or macrocytes), and MEGALOBLASTS.Infectious Anemia Virus, Equine: A species of LENTIVIRUS, subgenus equine lentiviruses (LENTIVIRUSES, EQUINE), causing acute and chronic infection in horses. It is transmitted mechanically by biting flies, mosquitoes, and midges, and iatrogenically through unsterilized equipment. Chronic infection often consists of acute episodes with remissions.Anemia, Hemolytic, Congenital: Hemolytic anemia due to various intrinsic defects of the erythrocyte.Recombinant Proteins: Proteins prepared by recombinant DNA technology.Equine Infectious Anemia: Viral disease of horses caused by the equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV; INFECTIOUS ANEMIA VIRUS, EQUINE). It is characterized by intermittent fever, weakness, and anemia. Chronic infection consists of acute episodes with remissions.Chicken anemia virus: The type species of GYROVIRUS, a small, non-enveloped DNA virus originally isolated from contaminated vaccines in Japan. It causes chicken infectious anemia and may possibly play a key role in hemorrhagic anemia syndrome, anemia dermatitis, and blue wing disease.Anemia, Dyserythropoietic, Congenital: A familial disorder characterized by ANEMIA with multinuclear ERYTHROBLASTS, karyorrhexis, asynchrony of nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation, and various nuclear abnormalities of bone marrow erythrocyte precursors (ERYTHROID PRECURSOR CELLS). Type II is the most common of the 3 types; it is often referred to as HEMPAS, based on the Hereditary Erythroblast Multinuclearity with Positive Acidified Serum test.Anemia, Diamond-Blackfan: A rare congenital hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. The disease is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, occasional neutropenia or thrombocytosis, a normocellular bone marrow with erythroid hypoplasia, and an increased risk of developing leukemia.

The effect of chelating agents on iron mobilization in Chang cell cultures. (1/490)

The investigation of chelating agents with potential therapeutic value in patients with transfusional iron overload has been facilitated by the use of Chang cell cultures. These cells have been incubated with [59Fe]transferrin for 22 hr, following which most of the intracellular radioiron is found in the cytosol, distributed between a ferritin and a nonferritin form. Iron release from the cells depends on transferrin saturation in the medium, but when transferrin is 100% saturated, which normally does not allow iron release, desferrioxamine, 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid, rhodotorulic acid, cholythydroxamic acid, and tropolone all promote the mobilization of ferritin iron and its release from cells. They are effective to an approximately equal degree. The incubation of [59Fe]transferrin with tropolone in vitro at a molar ratio of 1:500 results in the transfer of most of the labeled iron to the chelator, reflecting the exceptionally high binding constant of this compound. How far these phenomena relate to therapeutic potentially remains to be seen.  (+info)

Evidence for and consequences of chronic heme deficiency in Belgrade rat reticulocytes. (2/490)

The Belgrade rat has a microcytic, hypochromic anemia inherited as an autosomal recessive trait (gene symbol b). Transferrin-dependent iron uptake is defective because of a mutation in Nramp2 (now DMT1, also called DCT1), the protein responsible for endosomal iron efflux. Hence, Belgrade reticulocytes are iron deficient. We show that a chromatographic method is able to measure the amount of 'free' heme in reticulocytes. Most of the 'free' heme is the result of biosynthesis. Succinylacetone, an inhibitor of heme synthesis, decreases the level of 'free' heme and cycloheximide, an inhibitor of globin synthesis, increases the 'free' heme level. In a pulse-chase experiment with 59Fe-transferrin, the 'free' heme pool behaves as an intermediate, with a half-life of just over 2 h. Belgrade reticulocytes contain about 40% as much 'free' heme as do heterozygous or homozygous reticulocytes. This deficiency of 'free' heme slows initiation of translation in Belgrade reticulocytes by increasing the level of an inhibitor of initiation. Thus the Belgrade rat makes a whole animal model available with chronic heme deficiency.  (+info)

Hypochromic red cells and reticulocyte haemglobin content as markers of iron-deficient erythropoiesis in patients undergoing chronic haemodialysis. (3/490)

BACKGROUND: In patients on chronic haemodialysis, because of a non-specific increase in serum ferritin, iron deficiency may be overlooked leading to failure of erythropoietin treatment. A reticulocyte haemglobin content < 26 pg and a percentage of hypochromic red cells > 2.5 have been proposed as markers of iron-deficient erythropoiesis in such subjects, but it is unclear which parameter is superior. METHODS: We measured haematocrit, reticulocyte haemglobin content, ferritin and the percentage of hypochromic red cells over 10-150 days in 36 chronic haemodialysis patients in a university hospital. Transferrin saturation was also measured in a subset of 25 patients; iron deficiency was defined as a transferrin saturation < 15%. RESULTS: The diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of a reticulocyte haemoglobin content < 26 pg in detecting iron deficiency were 100% and 73% respectively, compared with 91% and 54% for a percentage of hypochromic red cells > 2.5. Paradoxical reticulocyte haemglobin concentrations occurred on follow-up in five patients receiving 4000 U erythropoietin per haemodialysis (HD). In three patients, reticulocyte haemglobin content exceeded 26 pg despite a persistent lack of iron. In a fourth, iron gluconate (62.5 mg i.v./HD) increased transferrin saturation to 27% and reduced the percentage of hypochromic red cells from 12 to 4, while reticulocyte haemglobin remained > 30 pg. In the final patient, iron gluconate increased transferrin saturation from 8 to 30% and reduced the percentage of hypochromic red cells from 40 to below 5, but reticulocyte haemglobin content remained < or = 26 pg throughout. CONCLUSIONS: The reticulocyte haemglobin content is superior to the percentage of hypochromic red cells in detecting iron deficiency in haemodialysis patients.  (+info)

The contribution of alpha+-thalassaemia to anaemia in a Nigerian population exposed to intense malaria transmission. (4/490)

The proportion to which alpha-thalassaemia contributes to anaemia in Africa is not well recognized. In an area of intense malaria transmission in South-West Nigeria, haematological parameters of alpha-thalassaemia were examined in 494 children and 119 adults. The -alpha3.7 type of alpha+-thalassaemia was observed at a gene frequency of 0.27. Nine and 36.5% of individuals were homozygous and heterozygous, respectively. P.falciparum-infection was present in 78% of children and in 39% of adults. The alpha-globin genotypes did not correlate with the prevalence of P. falciparum-infection. alpha+-thalassaemic individuals had significantly lower mean values of haemoglobin, mean corpuscular volume, and mean corpuscular haemoglobin than non-thalassaemic subjects. Anaemia was seen in 54. 7% of children with a normal alpha-globin genotype, in 69.9% of heterozygous (odds ratio: 1.99, 95% confidence interval: 1.32-3.00, P = 0.001), and in 88.4% of homozygous alpha+-thalassaemic children (odds ratio: 7.72, 95% confidence interval: 2.85-20.90, P = 0.0001). The findings show that alpha+-thalassaemia contributes essentially to mild anaemia, microcytosis, and hypochromia in Nigeria.  (+info)

Fe(III)-EDTA complex as iron fortification. Further studies. (5/490)

The data presented confirm the advantages of Fe(III)-EDTA as a salt for iron fortification. This iron compound exchanges completely with intrinsic wheat iron in the lumen of the gut. The iron absorption data from this salt tested with six different food vehicles compared with the absorption of ferrous sulfate administered with the same vehicles indicate that while the mean absorption from ferrous sulfate varies from 2 to 30% according to the food vehicle mixed with the salt, the absorption from Fe(III)-EDTA remains practically the same. Apparently, the iron absorption from Fe(III)-EDTA complex is slightly or not affected by the presence of vegetable foods or milk. All these data suggest that only a small amount of iron from this salt, about 10 mg/day, would be necessary to prevent iron deficiency anemia even in those populations relying for their subsistence on vegetable food only.  (+info)

Cardiorespiratory, hematological and physical performance responses of anemic subjects to iron treatment. (7/490)

Twenty-nine adult iron-deficient anemis subjects (13 men and 16 women) with hemoglobin levels of 4.0 to 12.0 g/100 ml blood were divided into either an iron treatment or placebo group. Hematological, cardiorespiratory and performance data were collected before, during, and after treatment and compared with data from a control group of subjects (4 men and 6 women) from the same socioeconomic population. Hemoglobin levels for the iron treatment group improved from 7.7 to 12.4 g for the women and from 7.1 to 14.0 g for the men. Values for the control group were 13.9 g and 14.3 g for the women and men, respectively. The placebo group showed virtually no change over the 80-day period (8.1-8.4 g for women and 7.7-7.4 g for men). Peak exercise heart rates (5 min, 40-cm step test) were significantly reduced after treatment from 155 to 113 for the iron treatment men and 152 to 123 for the women compared with the placebo group which showed no changes. Values for the control group were 119 and 142 for the men and women, respectively. In response to the exercise test, no difference in oxygen consumption was found between the iron treatment and placebo group although 15% more O2 was delivered per pulse in the iron treatment group. Blood lactates were significantly highein the placebo than iron treatment group both at rest, 1.18 versus 0.64 mmole/liter, and 1 min after exercise, 5.30 versus 2.68 mmoles/liter. No changes in handgrip or shoulder adductor strength were observed following treatment. These results clearly support the concept that performance requiring high oxygen delivery is significantly affected by hemoglobin levels.  (+info)

Anemia in the elderly. (8/490)

Anemia should not be accepted as an inevitable consequence of aging. A cause is found in approximately 80 percent of elderly patients. The most common causes of anemia in the elderly are chronic disease and iron deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency, folate deficiency, gastrointestinal bleeding and myelodysplastic syndrome are among other causes of anemia in the elderly. Serum ferritin is the most useful test to differentiate iron deficiency anemia from anemia of chronic disease. Not all cases of vitamin B12 deficiency can be identified by low serum levels. The serum methylmalonic acid level may be useful for diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is effectively treated with oral vitamin B12 supplementation. Folate deficiency is treated with 1 mg of folic acid daily.  (+info)

Hypochromic anemia is a generic term for any type of anemia in which the red blood cells (erythrocytes) are paler than normal. (Hypo- refers to less, and chromic means color.) A normal red blood cell will have an area of pallor in the center of it; it is biconcave disk shaped. In hypochromic cells, this area of central pallor is increased. This decrease in redness is due to a disproportionate reduction of red cell hemoglobin (the pigment that imparts the red color) in proportion to the volume of the cell. Clinically the color can be evaluated by the Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) or Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC). The MCHC is considered the better parameter of the two as it adjusts for effect the size of the cell has on its color. Hypochromia is clinically defined as below the normal MHC reference range of 27-33 picograms/cell in adults or below the normal MCHC reference range of 33-36 g/dL in adults. Red blood cells will also be small (microcytic), leading to substantial ...
and monitored for changes in the blood profile using a haematological analyser. A chronic infection lasting between 48 and 112 days was observed. Microcytic hypochromic anaemia, which was characterized by a decline in packed cell volume (PCV), red blood cell (RBC) numbers, mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCH) developed at an early stage, and persisted throughout the infection. The mean platelet counts declined significantly from 3 x 105/μl (day 0 post infection) to 6.8 x 104/μl (day 7 post infection) and remained low in all the animals. However, the mean platelets volume rose during the course of the infection. An initial decline in total white blood cell (WBC) counts occurred between day 0 and 7 (3.1 x 106/μl) and remained low up to day 35 post infection (3.5 x 106/μl). This was followed by an increase in WBC counts, principally associated with increased lymphocyte numbers. It is concluded that microcytic hypochromic anaemia, thrombocytopaenia ...

A 10-year-old male child came to our out-patient department (OPD) for evaluation of refractory anemia. He had received adequate dietary and oral iron supplementation but still required multiple blood transfusions. He had no anorexia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps or bleeding from any site. There was no family history of blood transfusions. Laboratory investigations showed hemoglobin of 6.4 gm/dl, total leucocyte count 7600 cells/cumm, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) 18 mm/hr at end of 1 hour, packed cell volume 22%, mean corpuscular volume 54.1fL, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) 25.4gm/dL, Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) 17.2%, reticulocyte count 1.13%, serum ferritin 2.6ng/dL, serum iron 15ug/dL and Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) 570 mcg/dL suggestive of iron deficiency anemia (IDA).

Vulpe C.D., Kuo Y.M., Murphy T.L., Cowley L., Askwith C., Libina N., Gitschier J., Anderson G.J.. Iron is essential for many cellular functions; consequently, disturbances of iron homeostasis, leading to either iron deficiency or iron overload, can have significant clinical consequences. Despite the clinical prevalence of these disorders, the mechanism by which dietary iron is absorbed into the body is poorly understood. We have identified a key component in intestinal iron transport by study of the sex-linked anaemia (sla) mouse, which has a block in intestinal iron transport. Mice carrying the sla mutation develop moderate to severe microcytic hypochromic anaemia. Although these mice take up iron from the intestinal lumen into mature epithelial cells normally, the subsequent exit of iron into the circulation is diminished. As a result, iron accumulates in enterocytes and is lost during turnover of the intestinal epithelium. Biochemical studies have failed to identify the underlying difference ...
Beta-thalassemia (β-thalassemia) is characterized by reduced synthesis of the haemoglobin subunit beta (haemoglobin beta chain) that results in microcytic hypochromic anaemia, an abnormal peripheral blood smear with nucleated red blood cells, and reduced amounts of haemoglobin A (HbA) on haemoglobin analysis. Individuals with thalassemia major have severe anaemia and hepatosplenomegaly; they usually come to medical attention within the first two years of life. Without treatment, affected children have severe failure to thrive and shortened life expectancy. Treatment with a regular transfusion program and chelation therapy, aimed at reducing transfusion iron overload, allows for normal growth and development and may improve the overall prognosis. Individuals with thalassemia intermedia present later and have milder anaemia that only rarely requires transfusion. [1] These individuals are at risk for iron overload secondary to increased intestinal absorption of iron as a result of ineffective ...
alpha thalassemias result in excess beta chain production in adults and excess gamma chains in newborns. The excess beta chains form unstable tetramers that have abnormal oxygen dissociation curves.. There are four genetic loci for alpha globin. The more of these loci that are deleted or affected by mutation, the more severe will be the manifestations of the disease. If all four loci are affected, the fetus cannot live once outside the uterus: most such infants are dead at birth with hydrops fetalis, and those who are born alive die shortly after birth. They are edematous and have little circulating hemoglobin, and the hemoglobin that is present is all tetrameric gamma chains (hemoglobin Barts).. If three loci are affected, Hemoglobin H disease results. Two unstable hemoglobins are present in the blood, both hemoglobin Barts and hemoglobin H (tetrameric beta chains). There is a microcytic hypochromic anemia with target cells and Heinz bodies on the peripheral blood smear. The disease may first ...

Missense mutations in ferroportin1 (fpn1), an intestinal and macrophage iron exporter, have been identified between transmembrane helices 3 and 4 in the zebrafish anemia mutant weissherbst (weh(Tp85c-/-)) and in patients with type 4 hemochromatosis. To explore the effects of fpn1 mutation on blood development and iron homeostasis in the adult zebrafish, weh(Tp85c-/-) zebrafish were rescued by injection with iron dextran and studied in comparison with injected and uninjected WT zebrafish and heterozygotes. Although iron deposition was observed in all iron-injected fish, only weh(Tp85c-/-) zebrafish exhibited iron accumulation in the intestinal epithelium compatible with a block in iron export. Iron injections initially reversed the anemia. However, 8 months after iron injections were discontinued, weh(Tp85c-/-) zebrafish developed hypochromic anemia and impaired erythroid maturation despite the persistence of iron-loaded macrophages and elevated hepatic nonheme iron stores. Quantitative real-time ...

The authors report two cases of malignant tumours of the small intestine (one adenocarcinoma and one lymphoma). In both patients, longstanding anemia with hypochromia and decreased serum iron remained unexplained for some time. Iron was prescribed without definite diagnosis. These two cases demonstrate the extreme latency of these tumours and the necessity for detailed intestinal investigations in patients presenting with isolated hypochromic hyposideremic anemia. Among these investigations, doubla contrast roentgenographic study of the small intestine appears to be an adequate diagnostic procedure for disclosing even very small lesions.

Microcytic anemia is not caused by reduced DNA synthesis[citation needed].. Thalassemia can cause microcytosis. Depending upon how the terms are being defined, thalassemia can be considered a cause of microcytic anemia, or it can be considered a cause of microcytosis but not a cause of microcytic anemia.. There are many causes of microcytosis, which is essentially only a descriptor. Cells can be small because of mutations in the formation of blood cells (hereditary microcytosis) or because they are not filled with enough hemoglobin, as in iron-deficiency-associated microcytosis.. Red blood cells can be characterised by their haemoglobin content as well as by their size. The haemoglobin content is referred to as the cells colour. Therefore, there are both "normochromic microcytotic red cells" and "hypochromic, microcytotic red cells". The normochromic cells have a normal concentration of haemoglobin, and are therefore red enough while the hypochromic cells do not; thus the value of the mean ...

Subclinical iron deficiency anemia was diagnosed in a captive neonatal female Malayan tapir (Tapirus indicus) through blood samples obtained as part of an in-house training program for venipuncture. Routine blood testing performed at day 2 of age was within in-house and ISIS normal values for this species. Microcytic hypochromic anemia (HCT = 16 %; MCV = 38.4 fL; MCH = 13.3 ??g; MCHC = 34.6 g/dL) with thromboctyosis (platelets = 1018 * 103/?L) and poikilocytosis was diagnosed at day 38 of age. Iron dextran (10 mg/kg i.m.) was administered at day 40 and day 68 of age. Blood sampling at day 88 of age indicated improving hematocrit (32%) and low serum iron (45 ?g/dl; ISIS normal = 154 +/- 54 ?g/dl). Total iron binding capacity (TIBC; 438 ?g/dl), percent saturation (10%), ferritin (240 ng/ml), and haptoglobin (16 mg/dl) were also measured, but normal values are not established for this species. Repeat blood sampling through day 529 of age showed normalization of hematocrit and serum iron parameters ...
SWART, P D R; RAUTENBACH, K y RAUBENHEIMER, J E. Reticulocyte haemoglobin content as a diagnostic tool for iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anaemia in ill infants and children. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.1, pp.23-27. ISSN 1999-7671.. BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of iron deficiency (ID) and iron-deficiency anaemia (IDA) in ill children is complicated by the unreliability of serum ferritin (S-ferritin). The presence of a microcytic, hypochromic anaemia suggests IDA but is not specific. There is a need for a diagnostic test that will be accessible, cost-effective and accurate for the diagnosis of ID in ill children. Studies done in healthy children have reported that reticulocyte haemoglobin content (CHr) is a reliable diagnostic test for ID, eliminating the need for S-ferritin determination. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the accuracy of CHr to diagnose ID and IDA in ill infants and children. METHODS: A prospective, descriptive study was conducted. One hundred children, aged 6 months ...
Iron-Deficiency Anemia What is iron-deficiency anemia? The most common cause of anemia is iron deficiency. Iron is needed to form hemoglobin. Iron is mostly stored in the body in the hemoglobin. About 30 percent of iron is also stored as ferritin and hemosiderin in the bone marrow, spleen, and liver. What causes iron-deficiency anemia? Iron-deficiency anemia may be caused by the following: diets low in iron Iron is obtained from foods in our diet, however, only 1 mg of iron is absorbed for every 10 to 2...
Paleness. Since iron-deficiency anemia entails insufficient red blood cells, its not unlikely for you to look pale. The mucous membranes of the eyes are especially good at revealing the presence of the condition. Pull down your lower eyelid with your index finger. If its pale, you may have iron-deficiency anemia alright.. Fatigue. Experts say that one of the first few symptoms of iron-deficiency anemia is fatigue. But its not the kind of fatigue you usually experience after a busy day at work - its the kind that leaves you feeling bone-tired all day.. Rapid Heart Rate. Since you do not have enough oxygen-carrying red blood cells, your heart will attempt to supply your body with enough oxygen by pumping much faster than normal. Some people with iron-deficiency anemia may also experience irregular heartbeats, which can give rise to the next symptom.. Anxiety. It can be very disconcerting to feel your heart beating irregularly or racing even if youre just sitting or lying down, and this can ...
We present the case of a 70 year old patient, with a past history of hypertension, myocardial infarction, who came to our attention for a chronic obstructive arteriopathy of the lower extremities and claudicatio at 100 m. The patient also displayed an hypochromic anemia (Hb=7g/dL); no history of evident bleeding could be demonstrated. Ultrasonography showed the left common iliac artery obstruction and patent femoral, popliteal and tibial arteries.. The patient underwent colonoscopy that revealed a reddish area in the caecum that could be referred to angiodysplasia, and two small peduncolated polyps (0.5 and 0.8 mm) that were resected. Histology gave evidence of a low-grade tubular adenoma. Abdominal and lower limbs arteriography confirmed the ultrasonographic suspicion and we therefore proceeded with primary stenting of the iliac obstruction. At the same time, selective arteriography of the superior mesenteric artery was carried out, showing an angiographic appearance compatible with ...
... is a type of blood disorder. It is the result of a lack of iron in your body. Pregnancy increases the likelihood of becoming anaemic, but here are some ways to reduce your risks of developing the disorder.. What is iron-deficiency anaemia?. The red blood cells in your body contain haemoglobin, which is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout your body. Iron helps to create healthy red blood cells that keep your haemoglobin at the right level. A lack of iron could mean that you are anaemic.. How do you know if you have iron-deficiency anaemia?. Tiredness is the most common symptom you notice. And as its also common to feel tired during pregnancy, many women dont realize that a lack of iron is making them feel more tired than normal. Headaches, poor concentration, dizziness or a pale face, lips and nails are also symptoms you may experience if you are anaemic.. If youre experiencing any of these symptoms, be sure to visit your doctor for advice and treatment if ...
Iron-deficiency anemia may be suspected from general findings on a complete medical history and physical examination, such as complaints of tiring easily, abnormal paleness or lack of color of the skin, or a fast heartbeat (tachycardia). Iron-deficiency anemia is usually discovered during a medical examination through a blood test that measures the amount of hemoglobin (number of red blood cells) present, and the amount of iron in the blood. In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, diagnostic procedures for iron-deficiency anemia may include the following:. ...

The article presents information on a study related to the efficacy of low-dose iron supplementation in older patients with iron-deficiency anemia. A randomized controlled trial of 90 patients was conducted in geriatric ward in a hospital in Rehovot, Israel. Low iron doses were given as liquid ferrous gluconate in a simple syrup to some patients. The study found that in older patients with iron-deficiency anemia, increases in hemoglobin levels did not differ between those receiving low-dose and conventional-dose iron supplementation ...
The study investigated the issues of iron metabolism under iron-deficiency anemia and chronic disorders anemia and dependencies of production of IL-1? and sICAM-1 immunoinflammatory markers from degree of severity and duration of anemia. The study data indicates that under iron-deficiency anemia lactoferrin and sICAM-1 are the negative regulators of hemopoiesis. The inhibition of transferrin expression by the proinflammatory cytokines is one of the causes of inefficient hemopoiesis under chronic disorders anemia.

Recent evidence has suggested that colonic neoplasm may be missed in patients presenting with iron deficiency anaemia unless colonic investigations are performed on all patients even when an alternative cause has been found. This study prospectively surveyed 114 consecutive patients referred from family practitioners to an outpatient clinic for the investigation of iron deficiency anaemia to determine the diagnoses contributing to the anaemia, the usefulness of certain clinical features, and the role of colonic and other investigations in obtaining the diagnosis. Upper gastrointestinal lesions contributing to anaemia were identified in 45 patients while colonic lesions were found in 18. Twenty three patients had a non-gastrointestinal cause for anaemia and in 12 patients no cause was found. Only two patients were identified as having colonic neoplasia (a small adenomatous polyp in each case) coexisting with upper gastrointestinal lesions. Symptoms and signs had a sensitivity and specificity of ...

A 23-year-old woman presented with intractable iron-deficiency anaemia. A barium meal showed widespread mucosal abnormalities in the stomach and massive mucosal hypertrophy was found at laparotomy. Repeated tests for occult blood were negative but gastrointestinal haemorrhage was confirmed by isotopic blood labelling. In the face of persistent anaemia and radiological progression, total gastrectomy was performed, since when a normal blood picture has been maintained. The excised stomach showed hyperplasia of all the mucosal elements, minimal inflammation, and no obvious bleeding point. Blood loss was attributed to diapedesis from a greatly increased capillary network.. ...

INTRODUCTION. It is well established on sound evidence that rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic disease.1, 2, 3, 4 The most dramatic manifestation is usually a polyarthritis. However, associated fever, anorexia, weight loss, muscle atrophy, iritis, elevated sedimentation rate, and anemia, and the often dramatic relief with jaundice,5, 6 or pregnancy,7 prove conclusively its generalized nature.. Of all the associated symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis almost consistently present is a hypochromic microcytic anemia of an appreciable degree.8, 9, 10 Of 50 cases of rheumatoid arthritis chosen at random from our files the average initial hemoglobin before treatment was 11.04 grams, the average ...
Microcytic anemia is present when there is both an inadequate quantity of circulating hemoglobin, and the mean corpuscular volume of erythrocytes is below a threshold value (approximately 80 m3). It is possible to have a microcytosis without anemia, if there are enough small erythrocytes, containing enough hemoglobin, to circulate the necessary quantity. There are also anemias where the erythrocytes are of normal or large size. Iron deficiency anemia, which can have a variety of causes, is the most frequent reason for seeing microcytic anemia, although further studies will be required for a definitive diagnosis. ...
Microcytic Anemias are a categorization of anemias defined as those anemias which yield smaller-than-normal erythrocytes (i.e. Low Mean Corpuscular Volume or MCV). In general, a relatively limited set of pathophysiological processes yield microcytic anemias and thus measurement of the MCV can significantly narrow the possible differential diagnosis for a patients anemia ...

1. Our aim was to investigate the effect of experimental iron deficiency on cardiac functional properties. We recorded ventricular isometric twitch, action potentials and the L-type Ca2+ current in isolated ventricular myocytes from iron-deficient rats and control rats.. 2. Twitch tension and maximal rates of tension activation and relaxation were reduced in iron-deficient compared with control rats, whereas twitch duration was prolonged. Isoproterenol (10−6 mol/l) augmented tension in iron-deficient rats (P , 0.05), but only moderately affected control rats. In contrast, maximal rates of tension activation and relaxation were increased equally by isoproterenol in the two groups.. 3. To determine the mechanism(s) responsible for the reduced mechanical function in iron-deficient rats, action potentials and the L-type Ca2+ current (with or without isoproterenol) were recorded in both groups.. 4. The L-type Ca2+ current was smaller in ventricular myocytes from control rats than in those from ...

Im a bit nervous of getting shouted at, if Im doing anything wrong/posting in the wrong place etc. please just let me know. My life story follows, feel free to skip over it (quite dull). Im 19 years old and really pretty lucky in the grand scheme of things - I wasnt misdiagnosed for years, I never suffered horribly. Ive had iron-deficiency anaemia, like, forever, but Im also vegetarian and female, so that kinda figured anyway. Ive also had GI symptoms for a little while (alternating constipation and diarrhoea, bloating, Im sure I dont need to spell out the details to you guys) but I chalked them up to me having a crappy but basically disease-free body. I never went to see a doctor because I was afraid of being diagnosed with IBS, which at the time I thought was like being given a life sentence with no real treatments ...

Collagen diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosis, Sjogrens syndrome, scleroderma and arthritis also cause muscular pain in the head and neck. Lupus is characterized by a butterfly rash of the face, fever, rheumatoid arthitis and pleural and abdominal pain. Laboratory studies reveal a high sedimentation rate, hypochromic anemia, a positive ANA test and a false-positive VDRL. Scleroderma is characterized by gradual onset of muscle and joint pain leading to a systemic sclerosis with anorexia, dyspnea and diminished sweating. Fever, skin lesions and limited jaw and chest expansion are seen. Sjogrens syndrome is characterized by dryness of the mouth, eye and skin and oftentimes, muscle and joint pain. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammation of the synovial membrane with pain in the muscles and joints. Numerous joints in the body are usually affected, and pain usually decreases with use. Fatigue, fever, muscle pain, night sweats and sometimes weight loss are seen. Studies show the ...
The prevalence of iron deficiency anemia is 2 percent in adult men, 9 to 12 percent in non-Hispanic white women, and nearly 20 percent in black and Mexican-American women. Nine percent of patients older than 65 years with iron deficiency anemia have a gastrointestinal cancer when evaluated. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force currently recommends screening for iron deficiency anemia in pregnant women but not in other groups. Routine iron supplementation is recommended for high-risk infants six to 12 months of age. Iron deficiency anemia is classically described as a microcytic anemia. The differential diagnosis includes thalassemia, sideroblastic anemias, some types of anemia of chronic disease, and lead poisoning. Serum ferritin is the preferred initial diagnostic test. Total iron-binding capacity, transferrin saturation, serum iron, and serum transferrin receptor levels may be helpful if the ferritin level is between 46 and 99 ng per mL (46 and 99 mcg per L); bone marrow biopsy may be necessary in
Iron is found in meat, dried fruit and some vegetables. It is used by the body to make haemoglobin, which helps store and carry oxygen in red blood cells (see box, left). Haemoglobin transports oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. If there is a lack of iron in the blood, the organs and tissues will not get as much oxygen as they usually do.. How common is iron deficiency anaemia?. Iron deficiency anaemia affects up to 1 in 20 men and 1 in 20 post-menopausal women (after a womans menstrual periods have stopped). Iron deficiency anaemia is more common in women who are still menstruating (having periods). This is because menstruation and pregnancy can cause iron deficiency. Outlook. Treatment for iron deficiency anaemia involves increasing dietary iron intake or taking iron supplements to replace the missing iron in the body. This is usually very effective and the condition rarely causes any serious complications. If you have iron deficiency anaemia, you may need to be monitored to check ...
This video-presented by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health-shows how Susan, a full-time worker and student, has coped with having iron-deficiency anemia. Prior to her diagnosis, Susan had symptoms such as tiredness, poor skin tone, dizziness, and depression. After her doctor diagnosed her with iron-deficiency anemia, Susan got counseling on how to improve her health and well-being. She began taking iron supplements and multivitamins to improve her iron levels. Susan also made changes to her diet, such as focusing more on green leafy vegetables, red meats, nuts, dried fruits, and beans. Other lifestyle changes, such as getting enough sleep and exercising, also have helped Susan feel better. To further improve her condition, Susan had a minor surgical procedure to stop her monthly periods. By following her treatment plan and making smart lifestyle choices, Susan continues to feel better and see the benefits of treatment.. For more information ...

If your iron levels get particularly low, you can develop iron deficiency anaemia. This is when you dont have enough iron for your body to make enough fully working red blood cells to carry the normal amounts of oxygen around your body. Having iron deficiency anaemia can affect your pregnancy and the growth of your baby,3 and you will likely be checked for anaemia as part of your normal pregnancy screening tests.. Signs that you may have low iron levels and/or iron deficiency anaemia, include feeling listless or washed out, looking pale or feeling breathless. Cravings are often joked about during pregnancy - dashing out for ice-cream in the middle of the night or a never ending desire for pickled onions. But having iron deficiency anaemia can also cause you to crave strange things, including ice, or even dirt. If you feel your cravings are becoming unusual, or you think you have any of the other signs of iron deficiency such as faintness or feeling fatigued4, you should talk to your doctor who ...

Nutrition: Iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency anemia is a condition where the body doesnt produce enough hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is responsible for carrying oxygen to all body cells. Common causes of iron deficiency anemia are low dietary iron, pregnancy, and blood loss due to heavy menstrual cycles or internal bleeding. Symptoms of iron deficiency anemia include fatigue, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, cold feet and hands, brittle nails, headache, and pale skin.
To the editor: The platelet count in iron-deficiency anemia is typically elevated. Severe iron deficiency may cause thrombocytopenia (1, 3); this has been shown in children (4). We have been unable to discover any report of low platelets associated with iron-deficiency anemia in an adult. The response to iron in an adult with a severe iron-deficiency anemia and thrombocytopenia but with normal serum folate and vitamin B12 levels is described below; an apparent case of iron-deficiency thrombocytopenia.. A 31-year-old black women presented to the emergency room with flank pain and hematuria of 1 months duration. For the previous year she ...
Anemia occurs when you have a level of red blood cells (RBCs) in your blood that is lower than normal. Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia, and it occurs when your body doesnt have enough of the mineral iron. Your body needs iron to make a protein called hemoglobin. This protein is responsible for carrying oxygen to your bodys tissues, which is essential for your tissues and muscles to function effectively. When there isnt enough iron in your blood stream, the rest of your body cant get the amount of oxygen it needs. In women of childbearing age, the most common cause of iron deficiency anemia is a loss of iron in the blood due to heavy menstruation or pregnancy. A poor diet or certain intestinal diseases that affect how the body absorbs iron can also cause iron deficiency anemia. Doctors normally treat the condition with iron supplements or changes to diet ...

Beta-thalassemia is due to a defect in the synthesis of the beta-globin chains, leading to alpha/beta imbalance, ineffective erythropoiesis, and chronic anemia. The spectrum of thalassemias is wide, with one end comprising thalassemia minor, which consists of a mild hypochromic microcytic anemia with no obvious clinical manifestations, while on the other end is thalassemia major, characterized by patients who present in their first years of life with profound anemia and regular transfusion requirements for survival. Along the spectrum lies thalassemia intermedia, a term developed to describe patients with manifestations that are neither mild enough nor severe enough to be classified in the spectrum s extremes. Over the past decade, our understanding of β-thalassemia intermedia has increased tremendously with regards to molecular information as well as pathophysiology. It is now clear that β-thalassemia intermedia has a clinical presentation as well as complications associated with the disease ...
Iron is an essential component of the production of healthy RBCs, and iron stores must be maintained for the ongoing production of RBCs by the bone marrow. Iron deficiency anemia can develop as a result of depleted iron stores from chronic blood loss, increased demands for iron as seen in periods of growth (e.g., in infancy and adolescence ), or malabsorption of iron even when foods or supplements are supplying adequate amounts. It is accepted that iron is hard to absorb; this, in combination with diets that may not meet daily requirements, is a common route to iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia. Iron can also be lost through strenuous exercise and heavy perspiration, poor digestion, frequent consumption of antacids, long-term illness, heavy menstrual cycles, and other causes. Infancy is a period of increased risk for iron deficiency because dietary iron may not be adequate for the rapid growth of the child in the first two years of life, an example of increased demand. The human infant ...

When people are working to manage an autoimmune or chronic condition, they typically focus on an anti-inflammatory diet and protocol. However, one often overlooked dealbreaker to getting better is anemia. Anemia as is a deal breaker to recovery because it means your cells are not getting enough oxygen. Without oxygen, recovery and repair cant happen. Anemia typically causes fatigue, weakness, brain fog, depression, lightheadedness, dizziness, irregular heart beat, cold hands and feet, chest pain, headache, and pale skin. There are several different causes and types of anemia. Not all anemia is iron-deficiency anemia. Its important to know this because you dont want to supplement with iron if you dont need it. In excess, iron is more toxic than mercury, lead, or other heavy metals. Types of anemia Iron-deficiency anemia. This is the most common form of anemia and is caused by insufficient iron. What is less well known is that gluten intolerance and celiac disease can cause iron deficiency anemia.
In a child with ID, as the Hb concentration falls 2 SDs below the mean for age and gender, IDA is present, by definition; for infants at 12 months of age, this is 11.0 mg/dL.7,8 When IDA accounted for most cases of anemia in children, "anemia" and "IDA" were roughly synonymous, and a simple measurement of Hb concentration was sufficient to make a presumptive diagnosis of anemia attributable to ID. Particularly in industrialized nations, the prevalence of ID and IDA has decreased, and other causes of anemia, such as hemolytic anemias, anemia of chronic disease, and anemia attributable to other nutrient deficiencies, have become proportionately more common.32. No single measurement is currently available that will characterize the iron status of a child. The limitations of using Hb concentration as a measure of iron status are its lack of specificity and sensitivity. Factors that limit erythropoiesis or result in chronic hemolysis, such as genetic disorders and chronic infections, may result in ...
7.0 g/dl). Thus, this sign is reasonably predictive when present, but not helpful when absent, as only one-third to one-half of children who are anemic (depending on severity) will show pallor. Because iron-deficiency anemia tends to develop slowly, adaptation occurs to the systemic effects that anemia causes, and the disease often goes unrecognized for some time. In severe cases, dyspnea can occur. Pica may also develop; pagophagia has been suggested to be "the most specific for iron deficiency." Other possible symptoms and signs of iron-deficiency anemia include: Irritability Angina Palpitations Breathlessness Tingling, numbness, or burning sensations Glossitis (inflammation or infection of the tongue) Angular cheilitis (inflammatory lesions at the mouths corners) Koilonychia (spoon-shaped nails) or nails that are brittle Poor appetite Dysphagia due to formation of esophageal webs (Plummer-Vinson syndrome) Restless legs syndrome Iron-deficiency anemia is associated with poor neurological ...

The essential features of X-linked sideroblastic anemia include the following: (1) a hypochromic microcytic anemia and 2 discrete populations of red blood cells, one microcytic and the other normocytic; (2) marrow ringed sideroblasts, particularly prominent in the late erythroid precursors; (3) a variable hematologic response to pharmacologic doses of pyridoxine; and (4) systemic iron overload secondary to chronic ineffective erythropoiesis. The age of clinical onset of the disorder can vary from in utero to the ninth decade. Whereas males are preferentially affected, females may present with clinically severe anemia. More commonly, female carriers of the disease have an increased red blood cell distribution width and sometimes erythrocyte dimorphism ({18:Fleming, 2002 ...
Serum ferritin is a sensitive indicator of available iron stores (1), but in certain instances it cannot be used in diagnosis, e.g., in anemias of chronic disease, infections, inflammation, liver disease, and malignancies (2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7). Iron stores may be normal or increased, though accompanied by increased serum ferritin, in anemias of chronic disorders, aplastic anemia, sideroblastic anemia, and chronic hemolytic anemia. Because ferritin is also a positive acute-phase reactant protein that is increased in inflammation (2), serum ferritin concentration is not a reliable index of available iron stores in individuals with chronic diseases. There is no information, however, on whether ferritin can be used as a marker of available iron stores in the anemia of copper deficiency.. Unlike iron-deficiency anemia, in which body iron stores are usually depleted as evidenced by diminished serum ferritin concentrations, anemia of copper deficiency (8)(9)(10) results from increased hepatic iron stores ...
51 Patients presented to our university outpatient internal medicine clinic who are found to have iron deficiency anemia coexisting with subclinical hypothyroidism have been included in this study. Patients were randomly assigned to oral iron or oral iron plus levothyroxin therapy. The physician and the patients did not know who received oral iron only or oral iron plus levothyroxine treatment. Hematologic parameters as well as serum iron, ferritin and iron binding capacity were being measured at the beginning and 3 months after treatment in both groups ...
