23 Possible Causes for Conjunctival Pallor, Dyspnea, Red Blood Cell Distribution Width Increased

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    […] high red blood cell distribution width, reflecting an increased variability in the size of red blood cells.A low mean corpuscular volume also appears during the course of[en.wikipedia.org] Anterior segment examination in both eyes showed conjunctival pallor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients may complain of: Fatigue Pallor Weakness Headache Palpitations Dizziness Dyspnea Irritability Poor concentration, impaired development Hair loss Impaired temperature[symptoma.com]

  • Folate-Deficiency Anemia

    Folate-deficiency anemia causes symptoms that are common for all types of anemia, like fatigue, irritability, headaches, diminished concentration ability, dyspnea, and palpitations[symptoma.com] Additional common symptoms include aches and pains, muscle weakness, and difficulty breathing (dyspnea).[rarediseases.org]

  • Anemia

    […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] Acute anemia presents with symptoms owing to acute blood loss; chronic anemia may present with worsening fatigue, dyspnea, lightheadedness, or chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] months Leukemia, myelofibrosis Usually spontaneous, but rates are increased in patients with prior radiation exposure or chemotherapy Anemia causes pallor, fatigue, and dyspnea[aafp.org]

  • Aplastic Anemia

    […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] Other common symptoms of aplastic anemia are chest pain, pale skin, excessively cold extremities, headaches, dyspnea and dizziness shortly after standing.[symptoma.com] Aplastic anemia may present with the following signs and symptoms: Fatigue Dyspnea on exertion Easy bruising and bleeding (for example, epistaxis, gum bleeding, heavy menses[cancertherapyadvisor.com]

  • Cooley's Anemia

  • Iron Deficiency

    Average size of RBCs (MCV) — may be decreased Average amount of Hb in RBCs (MCH) — may be decreased Increased variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width (RDW[labtestsonline.org.au] Anterior segment examination in both eyes showed conjunctival pallor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The physiological consequences include fatigue, lethargy, and dyspnea; conversely, iron repletion in iron-deficient individuals has been shown to improve exercise capacity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Severe Aplastic Anemia

    […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] […] male patient with hemochromatosis due to multiple packed red blood cell transfusions was referred to our emergency center for the treatment of severe aplastic anemia and dyspnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients may report tachycardia, palpitations and dyspnea, particularly when under exercise. They may appear cyanotic.[symptoma.com]

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    FBC shows raised MCHC and increased red cell distribution width.[patient.info] On examination, the patient was jaundiced and had conjunctival pallor. She had no clinical features of chronic liver disease or a bleeding tendency.[hoajonline.com] Anemia – paleness (pallor), fatigue, dyspnea (shortness of breath). Jaundice - yellow discoloration of the skin and white part of eyeball.[symptoma.com]

  • Sideroblastic Anemia

    Red cell distribution width is increased. White blood cells and platelets are normal.[encyclopedia.com] Moderate to severe anemia with fatigue, dizziness, and dyspnea should prompt an evaluation for SA.[5minuteconsult.com] As noted above, examination of the peripheral blood smear for a dimorphic picture, an elevated red cell distribution width (RDW) value, and the presence of siderotic granules[psychiatryadvisor.com]

  • Immune Hemolytic Anemia

    On physical examination, conjunctival, buccal and/or nailbed pallor can be seen, depending on the degree of anemia.[cancertherapyadvisor.com] AIHA is characterized by hemolytic anemia, which is most often revealed by an unusual weakness and fatigue with tachycardia and exertional dyspnea, and also in some cases[orpha.net] If the anemia is severe enough, the patient will present with symptoms of fatigue, weakness, dizziness, and dyspnea. It is rare to see symptoms of bleeding.[clinicaladvisor.com]
