2,302 Possible Causes for Macrocytosis, Patchy Areas of Villous Atrophy, Xeroderma

  • Tropical Sprue

    Furthermore, EME identified patchy areas of partial villous atrophy in 16 patients (5 CD and 11 TS) in whom standard endoscopy was normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Neither patient was anemic, although one had hypersegmented polymorphonuclear leukocytes and both had macrocytosis and megaloblastic bone marrows.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Macrocytosis occurs early. Serum and erythrocyte levels of folate are low. Anaemia may also be hypochromic from defective absorption of iron.[histopathology-india.net]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Alcohol is a common cause of macrocytosis, with a mean corpuscular volume (MCV) of 100-110 fL seen in a majority of patients.[symptoma.com] Alcoholism can also cause mild macrocytosis independent of folate deficiency, due to a direct effect on the bone marrow (common: 90% of alcoholics have MCV of 100-110 even[errolozdalga.com] In chronic alcoholism, macrocytosis, thrombocytopenia, prolonged PT, elevated GGT, hyperuricaemia or hypertriglyceridaemia may be found.[rcpa.edu.au]

    We report a case of a 46-year-old Moroccan man presenting with severe hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and renal failure in absence of macrocytosis, thus mimicking a genuine[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There were no clinical or biological signs of maternal anaemia or macrocytosis. Treatment with oral vitamin B12 rapidly improved the biological findings of the child.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Significant investigation results included a low serum vitamin B12 concentration, mild macrocytosis and raised serum homocysteine concentration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
