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.[] A complete blood count (CBC) may show increased reticulocytes, a sign of increased red blood cell production, and decreased hemoglobin and hematocrit.[] Reticulocytes decreased to 0%. Spherocytosis was present on the peripheral blood smear.[]

  • Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia

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

  • HELLP Syndrome

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

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

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

  • 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[] Abstract Patients with heterozygous beta-thalassemia minor have a decreased hematocrit (HCT).[] […] target cells) Schistocytes Ovalocytes Basophilic stippling Polychromasia Nucleated RBCs Possible hypochromia and microcytosis Codocytes (target cells) Basophilic stippling Reticulocyte[]

  • 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%[] The differential white blood count shows a decrease in most types of cells but not lymphocytes .[] Laboratory data showed low hemoglobin levels and slightly increased reticulocyte counts, while direct and indirect antiglobulin tests were positive.[]

  • 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[] 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.[] […] breakdown Indirect/ unconjugated bilirubin Reticulocytes : loss of erythrocytes reactive increase in erythropoiesis increase in reticulocytes in the peripheral blood In extreme[]

  • Cooley's Anemia

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

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    With each course, fetal reticulocytes increased within 48-72 h, peaked in 7-11 d, and fell by 18-21 d.[] (p 0.001), while hemoglobin and hematocrit remained stable.[] 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[]

  • Congenital Hemolytic Anemia

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