47 Possible Causes for Burr Cell, Hematocrit Decreased

  • Microangiopathic Hemolytic Anemia

    - schistocytes, “burr cells”, “helmet cells” and “triangle cells”. 6.[] -schistocytes -fragements -burr cells -microspherocytes What are some causes of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia?[] Review Topic QID: 101434 1 Bite cells and Heinz bodies 2 Sickle cells and target cells 3 Schistocytes and burr cells 4 Round macrocytes and target cells 5 Macrocytes and hypersegmented[]

  • Anemia

    Burr cells accompany renal failure and spur cells accompany severe liver disease.[] Throughout fetal life, erythrocytes decrease in size and increase in number: hematocrit increases from 30% to 40% during the second trimester to 50% to 63% at term.[] We observed a significant increase in hematocrit and transferrin saturation and a decrease in the percentage of hypochromic red cells and ferritin levels at the end of the[]

  • 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[] The laboratory investigations before death revealed evidence of hemolysis, which is decreased hematocrit, elevated lactate dehydrogenase (865 U/L), and low platelet count[] […] normal: decreased serum haptoglobin levels may be present indicating HELLP) [2] Liver Enzymes: As high as 4,000 U per L [2] Platelets: As low as 6,000 per mm 3 ( anything[]

  • Cerebral Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    cells, helmet-shaped RBCs, normoblasts, reticulocytosis, unconjugated BR, Hb, hemosiderin, haptoglobin, proteinuria Management Corticosteroids, aspirin, dipyridamole, Igs[] He also had melena with rapid decline in hematocrit and was treated with single dose of IVIg 75 g.[] […] hemolytic anemia Often severe with Hb 7-9g/dl; severity not related to other organ system dysfunction Negative Coombs' test Smear shows signs of microangiopahy: helmet & burr[]

  • Langerhans-Cell Histiocytosis

    Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) developing in a burr hole site for chronic subdural hematoma is extremely rare.[] Langerhans cell histiocytosis was diagnosed after biopsy, and the lesion regressed after cladribine treatment.[] Yosuke Moteki, Masatoshi Yamada, Atsushi Shimizu, Naoki Suzuki and Tomonori Kobayashi, Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis of the Skull in a Burr Hole Site Covered with Hydroxyapatite[]

  • 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[] Hemoglobin at the time of MRI (n 35) was decreased in all patients (range, 5.0 to 12.6 g/dL; mean, 8.2 1.4); hematocrit (n 33) was abnormally low in all but a single patient[] Title Other Names: HUS; Acute renal failure, thrombocytopenia, and microangiopathic hemolytic anemia associated with distorted erythrocytes ('burr cells') Categories: Hemolytic[]

  • Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

    A peripheral blood smear (PBS) was performed, which contained schistocytes (32%) with helmet and burr cells.[] hematocrit and hemoglobin and thrombocytopenia ; schistocytes on peripheral blood smears, elevated LDH, low haptoglobin, elevated indirect bilirrubin, elevated reticulocytes[] […] assessment consist in finding the presence of the following elements (peripheral blood smears and urine spot) although not all of them are necessary to confirm diagnosis: Decreased[]

  • Anemia of Chronic Disease

    cells Chronic renal failure Spherocytes, fragments Hemolytic diseases Dysplastic changes Myelodysplasia Reticulocyte count 1% Inadequate production in presence of anemia[] Management Transient decrease in hemoglobin and hematocrit are common in the early phases of the MP. My use of lab tests is to help determine pace of therapy.[] […] folate deficiency MCV normal Renal, liver and thyroid diseases as well as those above WBC and platelet counts Abnormal Primary marrow production problem Peripheral smear Burr[]

  • Preeclampsia

    […] hemodilution of pregnancy Peripheral smear (schistocytes, burr cells, echinocytes) Increased bilirubin ( 1.2 mg/dL) Thrombocytopenia ( 100,000) due to hemolysis and low platelet[] During pregnancy, the hematocrit value normally decreases-the fluid in the blood (plasma) increases, making red blood cells less concentrated.[] Alternatively, values that are three standard deviations away from the mean for each laboratory value may be used for AST. [45] Histology The presence of schistocytes, burr[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    A peripheral blood smear revealed burr cells and schistocytes, suggesting microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA).[] . : Overnight decrease in hematocrit after nasal CPAP treatment in patients with OSA . Chest 1990, 97 :729–730. PubMed Google Scholar 56.[] This increases blood viscosity decreasing pulmonary profusion and contributing to pulmonary hypertension.[]
