27 March 2014 (Thursday) - Iron Deficient Thalassaemic

An interesting case. Today's results looked like a case of thalassaemia, but as always iron status needs to be considered. But look at the history. Today's result was not really anaemic. Compare it with that on May 2013 when there was anaemia. And look at the MCV and MCH then comared with todays. And despite the anaemia on May 2013 look at the red cell count.
An iron deficient thalassaemic has very interesting blood count values...
