152 Possible Causes for Erythrocytes Increased, Erythrocytosis, Iron Decreased

  • Myeloproliferative Disease

    Megakaryocyte and late erythroid progenitors were dramatically increased, with only modest expansion of early erythroid progenitors.[] […] numbers of cells. lack of iron making RBC formation difficult spread of other diseases to the bone marrow Diseases of the different cell types Cell types and functions: White[] erythrocyte production Lymphatic decompression injury Lymphatic malformation Lymphatic vesicle Lymphoreticular injury Megakaryocytic hyperplasia of bone marrow Mild bone[]

  • Polycythemia Vera

    The increased production of erythrocytes leads to elevated hematocrit and hemoglobin counts.[] Polycythemia Vera Laboratory findings Elevated Hct – often 60% Increased WBCs and platelets Serum EPO levels are low Decreased iron stores (Ferritin) Increased Vitamin B12[] ERYTHROCYTOSIS AND POLYCYTHEMIA VERA 1. In patients with erythrocytosis, which of the following is not characteristic of polycythemia vera?[]

  • Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Tumor cells may produce erythropoietin and provoke erythrocytosis.[] […] abdominal mass; [9] malaise, which is a general feeling of unwellness; [9] weight loss and/or loss of appetite; [10] anaemia resulting from depression of erythropoietin ; [8] erythrocytosis[]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Polyneuromyopathy, amyloidosis, anemia, fever, cachexia, weight loss, dermatomyositis, increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), and hypertension are also associated[] The blood tests showed the biological signs of malabsorption with profound hypoalbuminemia (15.5 g/L, N 37), decreased serum level of iron (0.52 mg/L, N 7.5) and folic acid[] In addition, the following may be found: fever, weight loss, anemia, varicocele, and paraneoplastic syndromes (5%) characterized by erythrocytosis, hypercalcemia, liver dysfunction[]

  • Secondary Polycythemia

    And although these findings imply an increase in erythrocyte counts, they are not reliable indicators of polycythemia.[] Thus, decreased hepcidin synthesis will cause iron overload 45 .[] Out of these 53 patients, 28 (53%) patients had PV and 25 (47%) patients had secondary erythrocytosis.[]

  • Erythrocytosis

    Moreover, in case of low environmental partial pressure of oxygen, the number of erythrocytes automatically increases to preserve sustained oxygen delivery.[] - acute chest syndrome - SS disease, SS trait (no sickle cells on smear) hemolytic anemia unbalanced synthesis of alpha and beta chains of hemoglobin - clinical problem: iron[] In addition, EPO levels are a very useful tool in recognizing the nature of erythrocytosis.[]

  • Stress Polycythemia

    The increased erythrocyte production results in thickening of the blood and an increased tendency toward clotting.[] The plasma iron in such patients is decreased, the iron binding capacity increased, and plasma ferritin levels are low.[] Called also benign or stress erythrocytosis, Gaisbцck disease, pseudopolycythemia, and benign, chronic relative, hypertonic, or spurious p. Medical dictionary. 2011.[]

  • Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    Repeated phlebotomy causes iron deficiency with microcytic erythrocytes, which increases the whole blood viscosity and, therefore, can potentially accentuate rather than decrease[] Nevertheless, O 2 sat value increased from 71.7 to 75% and complaints such as headache, visual blurriness, having frequent sinusitis decreased.[] A rise of hematocrit above 75% resulted in return of symptoms, possibly due to marked increase of blood viscosity.[]

  • Polycythemia Neonatorum

    […] in the production of erythropoietin, hence an increased production of erythrocytes.[] Repeated phlebotomy resulted in a dramatic decrease in symptoms.[] […] conjunctivitis Inclusion: Ophthalmia neonatorum due to gonococcus D45 Polycythemia vera excludes: familial polycythemia (D75.0) secondary polycythemia (D75.1) D75.0 Familial erythrocytosis[]

  • Familial Polycythemia

    The increased erythrocyte production results in thickening of the blood and an increased tendency toward clotting.[] However, the major influence is hypoxia, including factors of decreased oxygen tension, RBC loss, and increased oxygen affinity of hemoglobin.[] In some cases, the cause of erythrocytosis is unknown. Familial erythrocytosis can have different inheritance patterns depending on the gene involved.[]
