Diagnostic workup in front of an atypical non hemolytic anemia.

[Diagnostic workup in front of an atypical non hemolytic anemia]. Rev Med Interne. 2018 Apr 13;: Authors: Colin JY, Vignon G, Mottaz P, Labrousse J, Carrere F, Augereau PF, Aucher P, Lellouche F Abstract The most potential causes of "non hemolytic" anemias are iron, folate or vitamin B12 deficiencies, severe renal impairment, endocrine diseases, inflammation and medullary disorders. In a non-exceptionnal way no cause is found, sometimes because of a wrong interpretation of analysis results and sometimes because of a little known etiology. The goal of this review is to point out analytical difficulties and to remember some rarer etiologies. PMID: 29661593 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Myomectomy is associated with significant blood loss and pre-operative medical optimization can improve surgical outcomes including minimizing transfusions rates and associated complications. The purpose of this study was to determine the proportion of women who are medically optimized prior to undergoing myomectomy with interventions to correct anemia and reduce fibroid volume.

Fibroids are common, benign masses which can result in significant morbidity for affected women due to heavy menstrual bleeding and anemia, bulk symptoms and infertility. In women who are pre-menopausal or wishing to retain future fertility, the surgical management of symptomatic fibroids is by way of myomectomy. The surgical removal of fibroids can be associated with significant intraoperative blood loss and subsequent blood transfusion, which is an important morbidity associated with this elective procedure in reproductive-aged women.

We report two cases of AAV with different renal manifestations associated with cocaine consumption. Furthermore, we performed a review of the literature to identify, characterize and describe h istologically documented cases of renal involvement in AAV, related to cocaine abuse. Cocaine/levamisole-induced vasculitis may, therefore, mimic idiopathic AAV. Although the detection of ANCA and anti-PR3 (proteinase 3, PR3) as well as anti-MPO antibodies (myeloperoxidase, MPO) are the serological hallmark of idiopathic AAV, certain clinical- and antibody constellations should lead to consideration of illicit drugs as inductors of ...

Abd-ElhakimAbstractLittle is known about the effects of oxyfluorfen, a diphenyl ether herbicide, exposure on the African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) health. Consequently, the existing investigation was designed to highlight the impacts of oxyfluorfen exposure on C. gariepinus hematological indices, liver and kidney functions, reproductive hormones, and oxidative status. Furthermore, a consequent 10-day depuration period was adopted to evaluate the recovery of the...

In this study, in vitro evaluation of anti-tumor and anti-angiogenic activities of NS, MTX, or their mixture in different concentrations using liver hepatocellular carcinoma and endothelial cells were performed. The protective effects of NS on normal hepatic and kidney cells against the risks of MTX treatment was also tested in vitro. Moreover, for in vivo evaluation, male Wistar rats were treated with MTX or a combination of MTX and NS. Hematological and serological, biochemical, functional, and histopathological studies were performed. The results showed that the low concentration of NS enhanced the anti-tumor and anti-a...

We report the first case of para-Bombay blood type in a Southeast Asian patient admitted at a tertiary hospital in Korea. A 23-year-old Indonesian man presented to the hospital with fever and was diagnosed with a disseminated nontuberculous mycobacterium infection and anemia. During blood group typing for blood transfusion, cell typing showed no agglutination with both anti-A and anti-B reagents. Serum typing showed strong reactivity against B cells and trace agglutination pattern with A1 cells. His red blood cells failed to react with anti-H reagents. Direct sequencing of FUT1 and FUT2 revealed a missense variation, c.328...

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is an effective and curative treatment option for patients with aplastic anemia (AA). High-dose cyclophosphamide (CY) (200 mg/kg) combined with anti-thymocyte globulin (ATG) is frequently used as a conditioning regimen, and shows excellent outcomes especially in HSCT from a human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-matched sibling [1]. However, the cardiotoxicity of high-dose CY is a major problem [2], since patients with AA often have cardiac dysfunction due to long-term anemia and iron overload associated with massive transfusion.

Anemia is the most common cytopenia seen in the myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). The majority of patients with MDS will require red blood cell (RBC) transfusions during the course of their disease. However, unlike many other disease groups, there is no consensus on the optimal strategy for RBC transfusion in this patient population. In this article, we review the data supporting the use of restrictive transfusion strategies in multiple patient populations and discuss the current literature regarding transfusion management in patients with MDS.
