178 Possible Causes for Hematocrit Decreased, Reticulocytes Increased

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    Reticulocyte count: Increased Treatment: Splenectomy is indicated for moderate to severe cases, but not mild cases.[medical-labs.net] A complete blood count (CBC) may show increased reticulocytes, a sign of increased red blood cell production, and decreased hemoglobin and hematocrit.[en.wikipedia.org] Reticulocytes decreased to 0%. Spherocytosis was present on the peripheral blood smear.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com]

  • Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia

    On this treatment, hemoglobin and reticulocytes increased and transfusions became unnecessary.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following delivery the infant had serial blood counts performed over a 6-week period, which noted a steady decrease in her hematocrit to 16%.[bloodjournal.org] The reticulocyte count was always low, in spite of the increased erythropoietic activity. A beta-thalassemia trait inherited from the mother was demonstrated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • HELLP Syndrome

    Blood smears have shown contracted red cells w/ spicula, polychromatic red cells, and increased reticulocyte counts.[physio-pedia.com] The laboratory investigations before death revealed evidence of hemolysis, which is decreased hematocrit, elevated lactate dehydrogenase (865 U/L), and low platelet count[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Polychromatic red cells are also seen in blood smears, and increased reticulocyte counts reflect the compensatory release of immature red cells into peripheral blood.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    The percentage of reticulocytes is mildly increased but may vary widely in a given case.[patient-help.com] […] the hematocrit, but not the WBC count.[clevelandclinicmeded.com] Unlike the target hematocrit of under 45% for PV, a target platelet count does not exist for ET.[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Thalassemia Minor

    […] count Normal May be slightly increased Slightly increased ( Mildly increased (5 - 10%) Mildly increased Hb electrophoresis Normal pattern Decreased amount of Hb A Variable[labce.com] Abstract Patients with heterozygous beta-thalassemia minor have a decreased hematocrit (HCT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] target cells) Schistocytes Ovalocytes Basophilic stippling Polychromasia Nucleated RBCs Possible hypochromia and microcytosis Codocytes (target cells) Basophilic stippling Reticulocyte[labce.com]

  • Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

    Over the course of the next 5 days, the Hb and Hct decreased to 4.1 g/dL and 12%, respectively, direct bili increased to 12.3 mg/day, reticulocytes slightly increased to 0.9%[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The differential white blood count shows a decrease in most types of cells but not lymphocytes .[labtestsonline.org] Laboratory data showed low hemoglobin levels and slightly increased reticulocyte counts, while direct and indirect antiglobulin tests were positive.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cold Agglutinin Disease

    Typical bloodwork results would show: decreased hemoglobin (due to the red cell lysis) increased reticulocyte count (reflecting the marrow kicking red cell production into[transfusion.ca] The MCHC and MCH values will be increased due to decreased hematocrit and RBC count. Other causes of invalid red cell indices have to be ruled out.[keralamedicaljournal.com] […] breakdown Indirect/ unconjugated bilirubin Reticulocytes : loss of erythrocytes reactive increase in erythropoiesis increase in reticulocytes in the peripheral blood In extreme[amboss.com]

  • Cooley's Anemia

    Children may develop dramatic, often life threatening drops in hematocrit with reticulocyte counts of nearly zero.[de.slideshare.net] The differential white blood count shows a decrease in most types of cells but not lymphocytes .[labtestsonline.org] This "aplastic crisis" often requires emergent transfusion support The effectiveness of present effective strategies has increased the life spans of patients with thalassaemia[de.slideshare.net]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    With each course, fetal reticulocytes increased within 48-72 h, peaked in 7-11 d, and fell by 18-21 d.[doi.org] (p 0.001), while hemoglobin and hematocrit remained stable.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On her third day of admission, due to hemoglobin (Hb) value of 6.9 g/dL with increase in reticulocytes, the patient was transfused with one unit of compatible leukodepleted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Hemolytic Anemia

    After partial splenectomy, children overall had decreased transfusion requirements, increased hematocrits, decreased bilirubin levels, decreased reticulocyte counts, and elimination[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As a result of splenectomy, reticulocyte counts often increase and transfusion needs are reduced.[orpha.net] Laboratory studies show evidence not only of many spherocytes but also increased numbers of reticulocytes (young red blood cells), hyperbilirubinemia (increased blood levels[medicinenet.com]
