ANEMIA---A state characterized by deficiency of either hemoglobin or erythrocytes in circulating blood.
---Achrestic anemia—anemia due to inability to utilize a necessary factor present in the body.
---Aplastic anemia—persistent anemia resistant to therapy and characterized by absence of
regeneration of red blood cells.
---Cooley s anemia—(Thalassemia)—A genetically determind defect of hemoglobin synthesis
Associated with hepatosplenomegaly,mongoloid features
And changes in bones occurring chiefly in children of Mediterranean
---Czerny’s anemia—Anemia in infants due to deficient nourishment.
---Drepanocytic ,Dresbach’s anemia—sickle cell anemia.
---Essential anemia—Idiopathic anemia.
---Hemolytic anemia—Anemia characterized by rapid
destruction and later regeneration of
red blood cells
Due to infection,drugs or exposure to chemicals,it may also occure as a result of an
---Hypochromic anemia—Anemia in which the decrease in hemoglobin is proportionately much greater than
The decrease in number of red blood cells.
---Hypoplastic anemia—Anemia due to incapacity of blood forming organs.
---Idiopathic anemia—That due to disease of the blood or the blood-producing organs.
---Jaksch’s anemia—Infantile pseudoleukemia.
---Lederer’s anemia—Acute anemia with megaloblastic blood cell regeneration,raised colour index and high
---Lymphatica anemia—Hodgkin’s disease.
---Macrocytic anemia—Anemia in which the red cells are much larger than normal.
---Megaloblastic anemia—Anemia characterized by the presence of megaloblasts in the bone marrow.
---Microcytic anemia—Anemia characterized by decrease in size of the cells.
---Myelopathic,Myelophthisic anemia—Anemia due to destruction or crowding out of hematopoietic
Tissues by space-occupying lesions.
---Normocytic anemia—Anemia characterized by
proportionate decrease in hemoglobin,
cell volume and number of erythrocytes per Cubic millimeter of blood.
---Pernicious anemia—Megaloblastic anemia in adult life,considered due to lack of secretion by the
gastric mucosa of a factor essential to proper blood formation.
---Primary anemia—That due to disease of the blood-forming organs.
---Secondary anemia—That due to some cause other than disease of the blood-forming organs.
---Sickle cell anemia—A genetically determined defect of hemoglobin synthesis associated with poor
Physical Development and skeletal anomalies,occurring usually in negroes.
---Splenic anemia,anemia Splen’ica—Anemia with enlarged spleen.
---Symptomatic anemia—Secondary anemia.
---Target cell anemia—Thalassemia.
