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.
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)

Increased intracellular or extracellular fluid in brain tissue. Cytotoxic brain edema (swelling due to increased intracellular fluid) is indicative of a disturbance in cell metabolism, and is commonly associated with hypoxic or ischemic injuries (see HYPOXIA, BRAIN). An increase in extracellular fluid may be caused by increased brain capillary permeability (vasogenic edema), an osmotic gradient, local blockages in interstitial fluid pathways, or by obstruction of CSF flow (e.g., obstructive HYDROCEPHALUS). (From Childs Nerv Syst 1992 Sep; 8(6):301-6)

Neoplasms of the intracranial components of the central nervous system, including the cerebral hemispheres, basal ganglia, hypothalamus, thalamus, brain stem, and cerebellum. Brain neoplasms are subdivided into primary (originating from brain tissue) and secondary (i.e., metastatic) forms. Primary neoplasms are subdivided into benign and malignant forms. In general, brain tumors may also be classified by age of onset, histologic type, or presenting location in the brain.
A radiological stereotactic technique developed for cutting or destroying tissue by high doses of radiation in place of surgical incisions. It was originally developed for neurosurgery on structures in the brain and its use gradually spread to radiation surgery on extracranial structures as well. The usual rigid needles or probes of stereotactic surgery are replaced with beams of ionizing radiation directed toward a target so as to achieve local tissue destruction.

  • The finding of ≥20% haemosiderin-laden macrophages in BALF is associated with a worse prognosis in patients with DAD. (
  • In the present study, the issue of whether increased numbers of haemosiderin-laden macrophages can be found in the BALF of patients with DAD was examined, and this finding correlated with clinicopathological features. (
  • Of these patients, 21 (36%) had undergone BAL pre-operatively and the BALF had been analysed for haemosiderin-laden macrophages. (

  • The skin of this patient with hemochromatosis exhibits the bronze pigmentation characteristic of the disease (compare with the skin of the unaffected person's hand in the foreground). (
  • Previous attempts to chelate the hemosiderin iron deposits have been limited to drugs that cannot effectively cross the blood-brain barrier. (
  • Histopathologically, CMBs are perivascular hemosiderin deposits after small hemorrhages, indicative of bleeding-prone microangiopathy ( 6 ). (

  • Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) could contribute to an increased risk of intracerebral hemorrhage in patients with antithrombotic therapy (antiplatelets or anticoagulants). (
  • Although antithrombotic therapy (antiplatelets or oral anticoagulants) has been the mainstay for primary and secondary prevention of ischemic stroke in patients with AF and/or RHD, its use in clinical practice is suboptimal due to the feared risk of catastrophic intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) ( 3 ). (

  • CMBs were observed in 90 (56.3%) patients, of whom 37 were with strictly lobar CMBs and 53 were with deep or infratentorial CMBs. (
  • The present study suggests that CMBs are common in ischemic stroke patients with AF and/or RHD and prior antiplatelet use may relate to the presence of CMBs predominantly in the strictly lobar region. (
  • However, uncertainties exist about the safety of OAC in AF patients with coexisting cerebral microbleeds (CMBs). (
  • 1 - 4 Also, the presence and number of CMBs seem to correlate with CHADS 2 and CHADS 2 -VASC scores (congestive heart failure/left ventricular systolic dysfunction, hypertension, age ≥75 years, diabetes mellitus, stroke or TIA or thromboembolism, vascular disease), which are used to estimate IS risk in patients with AF.
