51 Possible Causes for Burr Cell, Complete Blood Count Abnormal

  • Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

    ., schistocytes, burr cells, or helmet cells) on peripheral blood smear, AND Renal injury (acute onset) evidenced by either hematuria, proteinuria, or elevated creatinine[] Findings of hemolysis and thrombocytopenia on a complete blood count are required to establish the diagnosis.[] Title Other Names: HUS; Acute renal failure, thrombocytopenia, and microangiopathic hemolytic anemia associated with distorted erythrocytes ('burr cells') Categories: Hemolytic[]

  • Microangiopathic Hemolytic Anemia

  • Folate-Deficiency Anemia

    Even in patients with a normal complete blood cell count, it may be worthwhile to monitor the MCV after treatment because a significant decline within the normal range provides[] Finally, an apparent response to therapy (or lack of response to therapy) is less definitive in ruling in or ruling out Cbl deficiency than is the serial measurement of abnormal[]

  • Anemia

    Burr cells accompany renal failure and spur cells accompany severe liver disease.[] Often, anemia caused by chronic diseases goes undetected until a routine test such as a complete blood count (CBC) reveals abnormal results.[] What is a complete blood cell (CBC) count?[]

  • Congenital Heinz Body Hemolytic Anemia

    Burr Cells: Liver disease Renal disease Severe burns Bleeding gastric ulcers Maybe artifact Echinocyte (Burr Cell) Acanthocyte vs Echinocyte Howell-Jelly: are intracellular[] It is often done as part of or along with a complete blood count (CBC).[] However, chronic hemolysis may be an incidental finding when a complete blood count (CBC) is obtained for other reasons.[]

  • HELLP Syndrome

    Burr cells Schistocytes Reticulocyte count – consider to evaluate for presence of hemolysis Liver enzymes AST – 2 times the upper reference limit meets criteria LDH – markedly[] A series of recommended laboratory tests include: Peripheral blood smear Complete blood count (CBC) with platelet count Serum aspartate aminotransferase (AST) Serum alanine[] Laboratory studies should include: Complete blood cell (CBC) count Coagulation studies Peripheral smear for schistocytes, helmet cells, burr cells Liver function tests: serum[]

  • Fetal Erythroblastosis

    Schistocytes, as a sign of disseminated intravascular coagulation and burr cells, are present, as well as neutropenia and thrombocytopenia.[] The following abnormalities are observed on complete blood cell (CBC) count findings: Anemia: Measurements are more accurate using central venous or arterial samples rather[] If there is extensive disseminated intravascular coagulation, schistocytes and burr cells may be observed and neutropenia and thrombocytopenia may occur.[]

  • Leukoerythroblastic Anemia

    cells (echinocytes) may indicate: Uremia The presence of spur cells (acanthocytes) may indicate: Abetalipoproteinemia Severe liver disease The presence of teardrop-shaped[] They may be artefactual - see Crenated cells - or pathological - see Burr cells above.[] […] anemia Target cells Chronic liver disease Hemoglobin C disease Asplenia Burr cells (echinocytes) Chronic renal or liver disease[]

  • Cerebral Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

  • Posthemorrhagic Anaemia of the Newborn

    Other findings include burr cells (uremia), spherocytes (hereditary spherocytosis, autoimmune hemolysis, G6PD deficiency), elliptocytes (hereditary elliptocytosis), schistocytes[] , which may suggest the presence of mixed microcytic and macrocytic disease processes (a finding that should be suggested by an elevated red blood cell distribution width)[] […] reticulocytosis; target cells, which may be found in liver disease; basophilic stippling, which may be present in hemolytic anemias; and mixtures of large and small red blood cells[]
