1,144 Possible Causes for Microcytic Anemia

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    Abstract Iron-refractory iron deficiency anemia (IRIDA) is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by congenital hypochromic microcytic anemia, low transferrin saturation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients have hypochromic microcytic anemia refractory to oral iron and are only partially responsive to parenteral iron administration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The biological assessment initially showed a profound microcytic, aregenerative, iron deficiency anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Anemia

    The anemia is then categorized as microcytic, macrocytic or normocytic, with or without reticulocytosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The marrow does not respond appropriately to microcytic anemia, leading to decreased production of RBCs.[emedicine.com] The serum iron level, total iron-binding capacity, serum ferritin level and hemoglobin electrophoresis generally separate the microcytic anemias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Autoimmune Gastritis

    Laboratory findings in autoimmune gastritis by type of anemia Comparing macrocytic anemia in the top row of Table 2 with microcytic anemia at the bottom, there was a stepwise[bloodjournal.org] Morphologic analyses revealed that anemia was microcytic in 15 patients and macrocytic in 12.[jamanetwork.com] The study of Hershko et al. has also shown a high prevalence of H. pylori positivity in young patients with AIG and microcytic anemia.[frontiersin.org]

  • Iron Deficiency

    Differentiation from other microcytic anemias Iron deficiency anemia must be differentiated from other microcytic anemias (see table Differential Diagnosis of Microcytic Anemia[merckmanuals.com] Video transcript - [Voiceover] Iron deficiency anemia is anemia due to a deficiency in iron, and this is a type of microcytic anemia, but that's something you already know[khanacademy.org] For this reason, the anemia that occurs with iron deficiency is also called hypochronic microcytic anemia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage

    anemia, chronic blood loss Protect airway and give high-flow oxygenInsert 2 large-bore (14-16G) IV cannulate take blood for FBC, U&E, LFT, clotting, cross-match 4-6 units[slideshare.net] Microcytic red blood cells or iron deficiency anemia suggests chronic bleeding.[doi.org] , bleeding gums, lymphadenopathy.Bloody / black stools on per rectal examination. coagulation profile – primary or secondary clotting defectsRBC morphology – hypochomic, microcytic[slideshare.net]

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding

    Expect normocytic erythrocytes in acute upper GI bleeding; microcytic erythrocytes are suggestive of iron-deficiency anemia with chronic blood loss.[journals.lww.com]

  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

    Blood tests demonstrate a hypochromic microcytic anemia that is consistent with an iron-deficiency anemia.[en.wikipedia.org] anemia.[en.wikipedia.org] […] smears, and iron studies (e.g., serum iron, total iron-binding capacity, ferritin, and saturation percentage) to confirm iron deficiency, either with or without hypochromic microcytic[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Duodenal Ulcer

    We report a case of intestinal obstruction and duodenal dissection resulting from an intramural haematoma after therapeutic upper digestive endoscopy with injection therapy for a bleeding duodenal ulcer in a patient on long-term haemodialysis with liver cirrhosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Colon

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    anemia of varying degree. [3] Uraninite is a radioactive, uranium-rich mineral and ore with a chemical composition that is largely UO2, but also contains UO3 and oxides of[interhomeopathy.org] MCHC, MCV and RDW aren’t elevated in all anemias…they are different in different anemias.[pathologystudent.com] We evaluated the diagnostic role of eosin-5'-maleimide (EMA) binding test by flow cytometry in spherocytic and microcytic hypochromic hematological disorders in North Indians[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
