24 Possible Causes for Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Decreased, Microcytic Anemia, Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

    Investigations Complete blood cell (CBC) counts: decreased values of hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume Peripheral blood smears: hypochromic microcytic anemia[slideshare.net] The authors report the case of a 6 year old with Plummer-Vinson syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Blood tests demonstrate a hypochromic microcytic anemia that is consistent with an iron-deficiency anemia.[en.wikipedia.org]
