University of Wisconsin Medical School, Milwaukee Clinical Campus, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
A patient information handout on normocytic anemia, written by the authors of this article, is provided on page 2264. A nemia is defined as a decrease in the circulating red blood cell mass to below age-specific and gender-specific limits. In normocytic anemias, the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) is within defined normal limits, but the hemoglobin and hematocrit are decreased. The MCV is also age-specific (Figure 1) with normal values ranging from 70 femtoliter (fL) at one year of age to 80 fL at seven years and older. The rightsholder did not grant rights to reproduce this item in electronic media. For the missing item, see the original print version of this publication.
FIGURE 1. Most patients with anemia are asymptomatic. Therefore, the condition is most often discovered by laboratory evaluation, usually on routine testing as part of the general physical examination or for reasons other than suspected anemia. Anemia should be considered a sign, not a disease. It can be caused by a variety of systemic disorders and diseases, as well as primary hematologic disorders.

Ambulatory Management of Common Forms of Anemia
Wright State University School of Medicine Dayton, Ohio
Anemia is a prevalent condition with a variety of underlying causes. Once the etiology has been established, many forms of anemia can be easily managed by the family physician. Iron deficiency, the most common form of anemia, may be treated orally or, rarely, parenterally. Vitamin B deficiency has traditionally been treated with intramuscular injections, although oral and intranasal preparations are also available. The treatment of folate deficiency is straightforward, relying on oral supplements. Folic acid supplementation is also recommended for women of child-bearing age to reduce their risk of neural tube defects. Current research focuses on folate's role in reducing the risk of premature cardiovascular disease. A nemia is a common clinical syndrome frequently diagnosed and managed by the family physician. The prevalence of anemia in the United States has been reported to be about 29 to 30 cases per 1,000 females of all ages and six cases per 1,000 males under the age of 45, rising to a peak of 18.5 cases per 1,000 men over age 75. Anemia is defined as a reduction below normal in the total red blood cell volume (hematocrit) or in the concentration of blood hemoglobin.

Aplastic Anemia (Severe)
On this page:



Drug Therapies
Marrow or Blood Cell Transplantation

Aplastic anemia is not a single disease, but a group of closely related disorders characterized by the failure of the bone marrow to produce all three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Aplastic anemia is rare, affecting fewer than 1,000 people each year in the United States. The exact cause of aplastic anemia is unknown, although it has been linked to exposure to chemicals and radiation. It is also believed that some cases of aplastic anemia are inherited and that some cases are due to a viral infection.
In aplastic anemia, the quantity of each of the three blood cell types is much lower than normal, which leads to the symptoms that cause a physician to suspect the disease. These symptoms are unexplained infections (due to fewer white blood cells), unexpected bleeding (due to fewer platelets) and fatigue (due to fewer red blood cells).
To confirm a diagnosis of aplastic anemia, a physician examines a blood sample and determines the number of each type of blood cell circulating in the blood. Aplastic anemia is strongly suspected when two or three of the cell counts are extremely low. A definitive diagnosis is made if a marrow sample (a biopsy) shows a great reduction in the number of cells in the marrow itself.

Aplastic Anemia
What is aplastic anemia?
Aplastic anemia occurs when the bone marrow produces too few of all three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A reduced number of red blood cells causes hemoglobin to drop. A reduced number of white blood cells makes the patient susceptible to infection. And, a reduced number of platelets causes the blood not to clot as easily. What causes aplastic anemia?
Aplastic anemia has multiple causes. Some of these causes are idiopathic, meaning they occur sporadically for no known reason. Other causes are secondary, resulting from a previous illness or disorder. Acquired causes, however, may include the following:
  • history of specific infectious diseases such as infectious hepatitis history of taking certain medications, such as antibiotics and anticonvulsants

Iron-Deficiency Anemia
What is iron-deficiency anemia?
The most common cause of anemia is iron deficiency. Iron is needed to form hemoglobin. Iron is mostly stored in the body in the hemoglobin. About 30 percent of iron is also stored as ferritin and hemosiderin in the bone marrow, spleen, and liver. What causes iron-deficiency anemia?
Iron-deficiency anemia may be caused by the following:
  • diets low in iron
    Iron is obtained from foods in our diet, however, only 1 mg of iron is absorbed for every 10 to 20 mg of iron ingested. A person unable to have a balanced iron-rich diet may suffer from some degree of iron-deficiency anemia.
    body changes
    An increased iron requirement and increased red blood cell production is required when the body is going through changes such as growth spurts in children and adolescents, or during pregnancy and lactation.
    gastrointestinal tract abnormalities Malabsorption of iron is common after some forms of gastrointestinal surgeries. Most of the iron taken in by foods is absorbed in the upper small intestine. Any abnormalities in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract could alter iron absorption and result in iron-deficiency anemia.

KidsHealth Kids Kids' Health Problems Blood
To understand anemia (say: uh- nee- mee-uh), it helps to know a little bit about breathing. Have you ever tried to hold your breath? At first, you feel fine. After a short time, though, you need to take a breath. That's because when we breathe, our lungs take in oxygen (say: ahk- sih-jun) from the air. We need oxygen to live. We also need a way to get the oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Blood flows like a river through every part of the body. The blood carries the oxygen, but the oxygen needs something to hang on to. It needs a boat - and the boats that carry oxygen are red blood cells Red blood cells are made inside the bones in the soft, spongy area called the bone marrow (say: mar -o). So every time you take a breath, you breathe in oxygen. And your red blood cells carry oxygen to every cell in your body. What Is Anemia?
Anemia occurs when a person doesn't have the normal amount of red blood cells or if the person is low on hemoglobin. What's hemoglobin (say: hee- muh-glo-bun)? Hemoglobin, a protein, is an important part of red blood cells because it gives the oxygen something to stick to.

A uto I mmune H emolytic Anemia Information for Patients and Veterinarians What is AIHA Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is a disease in which the body attacks its own red blood cells (RBC). A pet suffering with AIHA will have a lower-than-normal number of red blood cells within the blood. This is termed anemia. The normal range for the packed cell volume (PCV) or hematocrit is 37-55% (the ratio of the volume of packed red cells to the whole blood). AIHA is classified as a “primary” immune disease. No underlying cause of the immune destruction can be found after an exhaustive clinical and laboratory evaluation. A “secondary” disease is called immune-mediated hemolytic anemia (IMHA). IMHA refers to all anemias that occur when the immune system inadvertently destroys its own blood cells secondary to an immune attack directed against an underlying condition such as cancer, endocarditis, heartworm or by unidentifiable causes as in AIHA. What are the Symptoms of AIHA?

One of the most common disorders caused by nutritional deficiency is anemia due to an insufficiency of B-12. This nutrient has the largest molecular structure of any single vitamin and consequently presents a serious absorption problem.
The typical approaches to treating anemia are to administer large dosages of ferrous sulfate (iron sulfate) which may cause gastrointestinal bleeding, or a 1 c.c. (1000 mcg.) intramuscular injection of vitamin B-12, which is difficult to maintain over a long period of time.
Absorption of B-12 in the diet is reduced by an erosion of the mucous lining of the intestines and decreased hydrochloric acid production in the stomach. Stress has also been implicated in reducing the amount of blood flow to the stomach wall (eschemia), and thus inhibiting the absorption of B-12.
Further, many people are lacking a protein called "Intrinsic Factor" that may also be necessary for absorption. Vegetarians are often at risk of deficiency because B-12 is only found in animal products.
Recently, a number of researchers have found that the Schilling Test, the standard for measuring B-12 in the blood, does not accurately account for utilization of B-12.

Sickle Cell is an inherited, chronic blood disease where the red blood cells become crescent shaped and function abnormally. When the blood cells become cresent/sickle shaped, they are unable to deliver adequate amounts of oxygen to other cells. The Sickle Cell Disease results in anemia (low blood counts), episodes of pain and increased susceptibility to infections. Sickle Cell produces a chronic anemia which may become life-threatening when hemolytic crises (the breakdown of red blood cells) or aplastic crises (bone marrow fails to produce blood cells) occur. If repeated crises occurs, damage of the kidneys lungs , bone, liver , and central nervous system may result. Occasionaly, acute painful episodes may occur. These acute episodes may last hours to days affecting the bones of the back, the long bones, and the chest. What makes the red blood cell become a sickle shape?

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia is a serious, life threatening disease. This site was set up to help owners make informed decisions about the care of their pet. It is not intended to take the place of a veterinarian, only to provide information on treatment options available and basic information about the disease. It is important to realize that having an AIHA dog requires a TOTAL commitment. Not only will this disease require a lot of time, but the emotional and financial burden can be great. The medications can be quite expensive and added to the veterinarian bills, can become overwhelming. You will need to adjust your schedule around visits to the vet and administering medications. The financial burden and time limitation are insignificant compared to the emotional roller coaster you will be on. This is a disease that can be controlled, but there is no cure.
