27 Possible Causes for Decreased Platelet Count, Polychromasia in Peripheral Blood Smear

  • Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

    Peripheral blood smear showed polychromasia and spherocytosis. Haptoglobin level was 0.06 g/L ( N 0.16-2). Both hemoglobin electrophoresis and G6PD level were normal.[jahjournal.org] Median absolute reticulocyte counts decreased from 236 to 109 x 10(9)/L (P .01).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Red blood cell agglutination, polychromasia, target cells and spherocytes were seen on a peripheral smear.[doi.org]

  • Secondary Myelofibrosis

    The peripheral smear of patients with primary myelofibrosis includes red blood cells of variable shape (including tear drop cells) and size and variable degrees of polychromasia[mpncanada.com] platelet count, increased bone marrow fibrosis, older age, and longer duration of disease. [1] , [10] , [11] , [12] We found no significant correlation of leukocytosis, higher[ijpmonline.org] CMGM/PMGM usually present with hypercellular ET with transient pronounced thrombocytosis (around or above 1000 10 9 /L) followed by progressive decrease of platelet counts[omicsonline.org]

  • Microangiopathic Hemolytic Anemia

    The peripheral blood smear revealed polychromasia, poikilocytosis, and many schistocytes. Bone marrow biopsy disclosed metastatic carcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Isolated decrease in red blood cells (hemoglobin) Anemia Isolated decrease in platelets Thrombocytopenia Isolated decrease in white blood cell count Leukopenia Decrease in[morningreporttgh.blogspot.com] Hemosiderinuria is seen in chronic intravascular hemolysis. 4) Examination of blood smear: Careful examination of peripheral blood smear by an experienced person provides[bioline.org.br]

  • Pancytopenia

  • Cerebral Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    Blood Smear (see Peripheral Blood Smear, [[Peripheral Blood Smear]]) Findings Polychromasia : due to reticulocytosis Schistocytes/Helmet Cells/Triangular Cells : RBC fragments[mdnxs.com] The persistent decrease in platelet count initially posed limitations as the patient needed to undergo an invasive diagnostic procedure.[actamedicaphilippina.com.ph] When accompanied by a decrease in the circulating platelets, it is called thrombocytopenic purpura ; when there is no decrease in the platelet count, it is called nonthrombocytopenic[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Sideroblastic Anemia

  • Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome

    Anisocytosis, poikilocytosis, polychromasia, helmet cells, marked schistocytes, and rare platelets were observed in the peripheral blood smear, compatible with microangiopathic[ziaristionline.ro] platelet count, and hemolytic anemia with schizocytes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This results in platelet activation endothelial cell damage, and white blood cell activation, leading to systemic TMA, which manifests as decreased platelet count, hemolysis[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hemoglobin C Disease

    Sickle and target cells, polychromasia, and sometimes Howell–Jolly bodies are detected on peripheral blood smears. Results of sickle cell solubility tests are positive.[clinchem.aaccjnls.org]

  • Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia

    Anisopoikilocytosis with tear-drop forms, polychromasia, basophilic stippling in peripheral blood smear, erythroid hyperplasia with megaloblastoid changes, binucleated cells[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Platelet counts increased to maximal values of 1200 10 9 /L, and in some cases platelet counts remained elevated for many years.[doi.org] The extent of the patient’s bone marrow hypocellularity, her haemoglobin concentration, and neutrophil and platelet counts place her disorder in the severe aplastic anemia[slideshare.net]

  • Acquired Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura

    Blood Smear (see Peripheral Blood Smear, [[Peripheral Blood Smear]]) Findings Polychromasia : due to reticulocytosis Schistocytes/Helmet Cells/Triangular Cells : RBC fragments[mdnxs.com] Platelet count was normal at admission and progressively decreased 6 days after intravenous thrombolysis with the occurrence of a hemolytic anemia with schistocytes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When accompanied by a decrease in the circulating platelets, it is called thrombocytopenic purpura ; when there is no decrease in the platelet count, it is called nonthrombocytopenic[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
