  • Refractory Megaloblastic Anemia

    Lack of CTP, TMP, and UTP leads to a decreased nucleic acid synthesis and decreased erythrocyte formation resulting in Megaloblastic anemia.[] , ve Rombergism, diminished position & vibration sense, amnesia, dementia, irritability, psychosis.[] . - Normal -160-640 m g/L of packed cells · False increase - Early folate deficiency - Reticulocytosis - Recent erythrocyte transfusion · FALSE DECREASE - Cobalamin deficiency[]
