198 Possible Causes for Acanthocytes

  • McLeod Neuroacanthocytosis Syndrome

    A peripheral blood smear showed 5% acanthocytes. McLeod syndrome was confirmed by immunohematology.[hum-molgen.org] When all RBCs with spicules (corresponding to type AI/AII acanthocytes and echinocytes) are counted, normal controls show less than 6.3% acanthocytes/echinocytes [ Storch[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acanthocyte count in MLS may vary considerably but usually ranges between 8% and 30%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vitamin E Deficiency

    OBJECTIVES: D-Alpha-tocopheryl polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate (Tocofersolan, Vedrop), has been developed in Europe to provide an orally bioavailable source of vitamin E in children with cholestasis. The aim was to analyze the safety/efficacy of Vedrop in a large group of children with chronic cholestasis. METHODS:[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Abetalipoproteinemia

    , indicating that acanthocyte membrane lipids are more ordered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It was increased from 3.2 0.1 poise in normals to 4.01-4.14 poise in acanthocytes.[doi.org] His peripheral blood picture showed many acanthocytes and he had very low lipid profile.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chorea

    Subsequent development of choreic involuntary movements, evidence of striatal atrophy on MRI and detection of acanthocytes in a peripheral blood smear allowed diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Peripheral blood smear examination revealed acanthocytes in our patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chorea-acanthocytosis (Ch-Ac) is an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by adult-onset chorea, acanthocytes in the peripheral blood, and Huntington's[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Zieve's Syndrome

    It is defined by hemolytic anemia (with spur cells and acanthocytes), hyperlipoproteinaemia (excessive blood lipoprotein), jaundice (elevation of unconjugated bilirubin),[en.wikipedia.org] It is defined by hemolytic anemia (with spur cells and acanthocytes/schistocytes), hyperlipoproteinemia (excessive blood lipoprotein), jaundice (elevation of unconjugated[quizlet.com] It is defined by hemolytic anemia (with spur cells and acanthocytes), hyperlipoproteinaemia (excessive blood lipoprotein ), jaundice (elevation of unconjugated bilirubin )[howlingpixel.com]

  • Erythrocyte Membrane Abnormality

    acanthocytic morphology.[alpfmedical.info] Acanthocytes show little to no central pallor. Both acanthocytes and echinocytes occur due to membrane abnormalities of the RBC.[theartofmed.wordpress.com] Acanthocytes have abnormal red cell membrane lipid composition. The associated hemolysis is mild and rarely requires therapy.[mhmedical.com]

  • Acquired Spherocytosis

    Acanthocytes have abnormal red cell membrane lipid composition. The associated hemolysis is mild and rarely requires therapy.[mhmedical.com] Acanthocytes Acanthocytes are seen in •Hereditary abetalipoproteinemia •Hereditary acanthocytosis •End stage liver disease •Anorexia nervosa •Malnutrition •Post splenectomy[slideshare.net] -Flow Cytometry of CD55 and CD59 -Mild-to-moderate liver disease causes target red cells -Severe liver disease is associated with acanthocytes (spur cells) -Hemolysis is mostly[quizlet.com]

  • Huntington Disease-Like 2

    Acanthocytes were detected in 4 of the 13 patients tested. Nineteen out of 20 MRIs were reported as abnormal with findings similar to HD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Researchers have concluded that the presence of acanthocytes in two unrelated pedigrees is unlikely coincidental.[web.stanford.edu] Proposed specific differences include an exclusive African ancestry, lack of eye movement abnormalities, increased Parkinsonism, and acanthocytes in HDL2.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
