414 Possible Causes for Normocytic Normochromic Anemia

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Hyperphosphatemia and hyperparathyroidism are common findings, whereas a complete blood count (CBC) reveals anemia with normochromic and normocytic characteristics, thus excluding[] The anemia of CKD is normochromic-normocytic, with an Hct of 20 to 30% (35 to 40% in patients with polycystic kidney disease ).[] Anemia is characteristic of moderate to advanced CKD ( stage 3).[]

  • Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage

    ASAIO J. 2013 Jul-Aug;59(4):450-1. doi: 10.1097/MAT.0b013e318295232d. Author information 1 Division of Cardiology, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia, USA. Abstract Left ventricular support devices (LVADs) are associated with a propensity toward gastrointestinal bleeding. A postulated mechanism is related[…][]

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage

    Abstract A 77-year-old patient with unresectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma sustained a life-threatening, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage 1 month after placement of a biliary Wallstent. Radiographic and endoscopic studies revealed a choledocho-arterio-enteric fistula caused by erosion of the stent through the[…][]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews Background Rituximab is a selective, B‐cell depleting, biologic agent for treating refractory rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It is a chimeric monoclonal antibody targeted against CD 20 that is promoted as therapy for patients who fail to respond to other biologics. There is[…][]

  • Glucagonoma

    Similar catabolic effects with respect to protein metabolism probably cause the normochromic, normocytic anemia and hypoaminoacidemia that often are seen at initial presentation[] The serum glucose was 129 mg/dl (normal range, 70–110 mg/dl), hemoglobin was 8.4 g/dl (normal range, 12–16 g/dl) and there was a normochromic, normocytic anemia.[] Additionally, normochromic and normocytic anemia and weight loss are frequently diagnosed in glucagonoma patients.[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    […] typically normochromic/normocytic renal failure proteinuria hypercalcemia Presentation may also be with a complication, including: pathological fracture vertebral compression[] normocytic anemia with a hemoglobin value 10 g/dL (or a hemoglobin value 2 g/dL below the lower limit of normal), and bone lesions (lytic lesions, severe osteopenia, or pathologic[] […] multiple myeloma is varied, and includes 1-2,7 : bone pain initially intermittent, but becomes constant worse with activity/weight bearing, and thus is worse during the day anemia[]

  • Anemia of Infection

    Abstract A major factor in the anemia of infection, inflammation, and malignancy is a relative failure of the bone marrow to increase erythropoiesis in response to a shortened red cell survival. The possible causes for this diminished marrow response are: (a) a reduced production of erythropoietin, or, (b) impaired[…][]

  • Subphrenic Abscess

    Subphrenic abscess describes an accumulation of bacteria, cellular debris and leukocytes in a purulent cavity situated inferior of the diaphragm, in close proximity to liver and spleen. At least one in two SA patients presents with a medical history of recent abdominal surgery. Onset of SA-associated symptoms[…][]
