• chlorosis
  • Hypochromic anemia was historically known as chlorosis or green sickness for the distinct skin tinge sometimes present in patients, in addition to more general symptoms such as a lack of energy, shortness of breath, dyspepsia, headaches, a capricious or scanty appetite and amenorrhea. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1841, Popper published a treatment for Chlorosis (Hypochromic anemia) containing Vitriolum martis (sulfuric acid and iron) and Sal tartari (potassium carbonate) in Österreichische medicinische Wochenschrift which was republished and refined in the following years. (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)
  • Diagnosis
  • Anemia is a manifestation of an underlying disease process and is not a diagnosis in itself. (medscape.com)
  • The diagnosis of anemia is influenced by variables such as the patient's age (neonates are anemic at levels of hemoglobin that would be considered polycythemic in some adults), gender (men have higher hemoglobin levels than women), pregnancy status (hemodilution in pregnancy lowers measured hemoglobin), residential altitude, and ethnic or racial background. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Blood tests, showing eosinophillia, poor clotting ability and speed as well as hypochomric anemia all point towards a diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Congenital
  • Benjamin Syndrome (or Benjamin anemia) is a type of multiple congenital anomaly/intellectual disability (MCA/MR) syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • hemoglobin
  • Hypochromic Anemia - 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. (orcexperts.com)
  • Anemia is defined as an absolute reduction in the quantity of the oxygen-carrying pigment hemoglobin (Hgb) in the circulating blood. (medscape.com)
  • Symptomatic anemia exists when hemoglobin content is less than that required to meet the oxygen-carrying demands of the body. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • If anemia develops slowly, however, there may be no functional impairment even though the hemoglobin is less than 7 g/100/dL of blood. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • factors
  • 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)
