185 Possible Causes for Poikilocytosis

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    Primary melofibrosis (Agnogenic myeloid metaplasia-AMM) is a chronic myeloproliferative disease characterized by splenomegaly, a leukoerythroblastic blood picture, teardrop poikilocytosis[] First two patients have massive splenomegaly, leukoerythroblastic blood picture with tear drop poikilocytosis but no cytopenias.[] 91–2). 7–15,262–265 Mean hemoglobin concentration in a series of patients at diagnosis is approximately 9.0 to 12.0 g/dL (range: 4–20 g/dL). 7–15,264,265 Anisocytosis and poikilocytosis[]

  • Thalassemia

    A blood smear with target cells and poikilocytosis provides additional certainty.[] Red blood cell distribution width may be enhanced, and blood films may reveal anisocytosis and poikilocytosis.[] Beginning in the first year of life the PBS shows severe anisocytosis and poikilocytosis, targets, elliptocytes, teardrops, and NRBCs.[]

  • Congenital Dyserythropoietic Anemia Type 1

    The peripheral blood smear examination revealed varying degrees of anisocytosis, poikilocytosis, hypochromia and tear drop cells.[]

  • Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency

    Embden-Meyerhof pathway Erythrocytes (mature red blood cells) completely depend on glucose as a source of energy. Glucose is usually catabolized to pyruvate and lactate in the Embden-Meyerhof pathway, which is the major anaerobic glycolytic pathway. In the process, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential[…][]

  • Hereditary Pyropoikilocytosis

    Published Date: 01/13/2016 •The red blood cells in this patient with hereditary pyropoikilocytosis show marked variation in size (anisocytosis) and shape (poikilocytosis)[] Abstract Hereditary pyropoikilocytosis (HPP) is a hemolytic anemia characterized by microspherocytosis, poikilocytosis, and an unusual thermal sensitivity of erythrocytes.[] […] py·ro·poi·ki·lo·cy·to·sis ( pī'rō-pōy-ki'lō-si-tō-sis ), A rare recessive disorder manifested by severe hemolysis, marked poikilocytosis, and a characteristic sensitivity[]

  • Hereditary Elliptocytosis

    In these three patients the blood smear showed pronounced elliptocytosis, poikilocytosis and a few small red cell fragments instead of the mild elliptocytosis observed in[] The red blood cells showed marked poikilocytosis and fragmentation.[] […] with neonatal poikilocytosis hereditary spherocytic elliptocytosis hereditary pyropoikilocytosis[]

  • Hereditary Elliptocytosis 2

    The clinical presentation resembles that of hereditary spherocytosis with patients typically having moderate haemolysis, mild anaemia and poikilocytosis.[] - during the first year of life only the individual has a symptomatic hemolytic anemia with poikilocytosis  With chronic hemolysis - the individual has a moderate to severe[] The red blood cells showed marked poikilocytosis and fragmentation.[]

  • Leukoerythroblastic Anemia

    Characteristic changes in peripheral blood include anisocytosis, poikilocytosis, and excessive numbers of RBC and WBC precursors.[]

  • Red Blood Cell Disorder

    […] pyropoikilocytosis HFE hereditary haemochromatosis I Iron deficiency L Latent iron deficiency M McLeod syndrome Methemoglobinemia Microcytosis Myomatous erythrocytosis syndrome P Poikilocytosis[] Tables Size Variations in Red Blood Cells Anisocytosis Reference Table Variations in Hemoglobin Content Hemoglobin Content Reference Table Shape Variations in Red Blood Cells Poikilocytosis[] Applicable To Abnormal red-cell morphology NOS Abnormal red-cell volume NOS Anisocytosis Poikilocytosis The following code(s) above R71.8 contain annotation back-references[]

  • Microcytosis

    Aniso- and poikilocytosis were marked on a stained smear, and there were many small hyperchromatic cells of irregular shape.[] Compare poikilocytosis.[] Moderate aniso- poikilocytosis with target cells and elliptocytes. A rare tear drop cell noted. ?Iron status. Increased rouleaux formation.[]
