Complete blood count showed normocytic, normochromic
Hematologic abnormalities included hypochromic macrocytic anemia (47%), normochromic
normocytic anemia (29.
His liver function tests, renal function tests, and complete blood count, were within normal limits except normocytic normochromic
anemia having hemoglobin level of 10.
Morphology showed normochromic
, anisocytosis, Rouleaux formation, circulating blast cells with Auer rods, bicytopenia with leukocytosis, neutrophils: 0.
Peripheral blood picture revealed normocytic normochromic
Increased rouleaux formation was observed on peripheral smear examination in all cases; 87% of the cases showed a normocytic normochromic
6 g/dl), normocytic, normochromic
anemia and a high total leucocyte count (23.
8 x 109 L, neutrophils 70%, lymphocytes 30%, platelet count 188 x 109 L, left shift of neutrophils, normocytic normochromic
red blood cells and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) (100 mm/hr).
In the current study, hemato-biochemical analysis revealed mild normocytic normochromic
regenerative anemia, normocytic hypochromic anemia and macrocytic-normochromic
anemia, slightly elevated WBC count (in all cats) with mild basophilia and monocytosis.
Anemia was observed in 1/3rd of patients treated with rituximab, which was mostly normocytic normochromic
, but we were unable to describe the true linkage with rituximab as it might be associated with the primary disease itself as we had not included the pretreatment hemoglobin in our study.
Initial blood results showed pancytopenia, a normocytic, normochromic
anaemia, and mildly elevated transaminases and canalicular enzymes.
anaemia was the dominant morphological pattern seen in 49% patients.
