93 Possible Causes for Bone Marrow with Increased Iron Stores

  • Hemochromatosis

    To describe unusual retinal findings of a patient affected by hemochromatosis. Case report of a 49-year-old patient who presented a progressive loss of vision. Fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, full-field electroretinogram, autofluorescence imaging, and spectral domain optical coherence tomography were[…][]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Marine-derived n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) may have a beneficial effect on inflammation via lowering pro-inflammatory eicosanoid concentrations. We aimed to assess the effect of marine-derived n-3 PUFA on prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), thromboxane B2 (TXB2), and leukotriene B4 (LTB4) through systematic[…][]

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    AIM: To perform a comprehensive review and provide an up-to-date synopsis of the incidence and trends of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). METHODS: We systematically searched the MEDLINE (source PubMed), EMBASE and Cochrane Library databases in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic[…][]

  • Ferrous Gluconate

    Previous in vitro results indicated that alginate beads might be a useful vehicle for food iron fortification. A human study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that alginate enhances iron absorption. A randomised, single blinded, cross-over trial was carried out in which iron absorption was measured from serum[…][]

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    Hemolytic anemia usually gives rise to only a modest elevation of serum bilirubin. Unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia of an extreme degree should raise suspicion of additional factors. We describe a 10-year-old child suffering from hereditary spherocytosis, who had unusually high levels of unconjugated serum bilirubin and[…][]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    The onset of pernicious anemia usually is insidious and vague. The classic triad of weakness, sore tongue, and paresthesias may be elicited but usually is not the chief symptom complex. Typically, medical attention is sought because of symptoms suggestive of cardiac, renal, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, infectious,[…][]

  • Anemia of Infection

    Abstract A major factor in the anemia of infection, inflammation, and malignancy is a relative failure of the bone marrow to increase erythropoiesis in response to a shortened red cell survival. The possible causes for this diminished marrow response are: (a) a reduced production of erythropoietin, or, (b) impaired[…][]

  • Crohn's Disease

    Azathioprine is commonly used in Crohn's disease. It has been administered to many pregnant women over many years without significant side effects. However, pancytopenia and severe combined immune deficiency-like disease have been reported in infants whose mothers received azathioprine throughout pregnancy.[…][]

  • Aplastic Anemia

    To report a case of severe, bilateral, rapidly progressing peripheral retinal nonperfusion associated with underlying aplastic anemia. An interventional case report. A 4-year-old girl presented with decreased visual acuity. On clinical examination, she was found to have a RAPD, elevated intraocular pressure, 360[…][]

  • Megaloblastic Anemia

    Catabolism of hemoglobin by the reticuloendothelial cells of the marrow and liver accounts for the increased iron stores and the bilirubinemias [7].[] Bone marrow aspiration is done to rule out a primary bone marrow disorder such as a myelodysplastic syndrome or leukemia and assess iron stores.[] Although a bone marrow biopsy is not usually required, blood smear examination is crucial.[]
