  • In developing embryos, blood formation occurs in aggregates of blood cells in the yolk sac, called blood islands. As development progresses, blood formation occurs in the spleen, liver and lymph nodes. When bone marrow develops, it eventually assumes the task of forming most of the blood cells for the entire organism.[1] However, maturation, activation, and some proliferation of lymphoid cells occurs in the spleen, thymus, and lymph nodes. In children, haematopoiesis occurs in the marrow of the long bones such as the femur and tibia. In adults, it occurs mainly in the pelvis, cranium, vertebrae, and sternum.[8]
  • Macrophage phagocytes rbcs then destruct it to haem and globin, the globin part reused again, and haem changes to protoporphyrin and iron, iron release into circulation, and protoporphyrin change to bilirubin in liver, bilirubin relaeased to bile then released ethier by stool or urine
  • Only mention two or three examples of types, and in RBC low and high means RBC count with microcytic, if its high you must say its bcz compensatory action of bone marrow, bcz in thalassemia minor our BM try to produce more RBCs so lead to high RBC
  • First class we will discuss Haemolytic anemia

    Results from increasing rate of RBC destruction
    Life span of RBCs less than 3 days

    Intrinsic defect: hereditory
    hemoglobinopathies:like thalassemia ,sickle cell anemia
    Enzymopathies : like G6PD deficiency anemia
    Membrane cystoskeletal defect: spherocytosis,eleptocystosis

    Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria: rare life threatening disease characterized by RBC destruction by complement system due to defective presence of a protein called DAF on the RBC(complement decay acclererating factor) its function is to inhibit complement system from RBC decstruction

    Extrinsic defect: hereditary
    Familial uremic hemolytic syndrome: rare renal failure, anemia, thrombocytopenia, is two types typical whichs due to ingestion of specific strain of bacteria release shi
    Ga toxin and cause enterohemorrhage means in intestine, atypical due to genetic mutation
    Mechanical destructiuon like red cell fragmentation syndrome: The red cell fragmentation syndrome can occur due the blood vessels or vascular malformations
    Toxin agent domestic chemical substances
    Drugs associated
    Infection b y malaria
    Autoimmune warm and cold

  • Reduced serum haptoglobin(is a protein that binds to free haemoglobin released from erythrocyte ,hemoglobin haptoglobin complex removed by spleen, bcz in
  • Defect in protein due to gene mutation involved in interaction between the membrane cystoskeleton and the lipid bilayer of the RBC (Vertically), the cell membrane of RBC become fragile and unstable at early life’s RBC they are Biconcave but when they circulate become spherocyte,the cell membrane produce small fragment and in the macrophage the small fragements deattached and released as SPherocytes
  • The RBC become more hypertonic
    Means it’s not autoimmune haemolytic anemia
    Normochromic microcytic
  • There is no cure for HS, but it can be treated. The severity of your symptoms will determine which course of treatment you receive. Options include:
    Surgery: In moderate or severe disease, removing the spleen can prevent common complications that result from hereditary spherocytosis. Your red blood cells will still have their spherical shape, but they’ll live longer. Removing the spleen can also prevent gallstones.
    Not everyone with this condition needs to have their spleen removed. Some mild cases can be treated without surgery. Your doctor might think less invasive measures are better suited for you. For example, surgery is not recommended for children who are younger than 5 years.
    Vitamins: Folic acid, a B vitamin, is usually recommended for everyone with HS. It helps you make new red blood cells. A daily dose of oral folic acid is the main treatment option for young children and people with mild cases of HS.
    Transfusion: You may need red blood cell transfusions if you have severe anemia.
  • Before we discuss this types, we mention that RBC have a pathway called hexose monophosphate pathway, in this pathway generate NADPH whichs important for maintain reduced glutathione,which is important to prevent damage from free radicals
  • Any response to oxidant stress leading to intravascular haemolysis,because G6PD is not worked properly
    Drugs like premaquine sulphonamied,nitrofurantoins
    Infections like viral hepatitis , pneumonia
    Favism : ingestion of fava beans
  • Yellowish skin due to execcive RBC destruction
    Dark urine due to intravascular haemolysis
  • Commonly found in ethnic groups, whose origins are near the medesterian sea and equatorial or near equatorial region of Asia;middle east
    Commonest group of AR in India
    Carier frequencies vary from 3% to 17% in different populations,with over 30 million people carring the defective gene
    About more than 9000 thalasemic children are born every year
  • We classified like that bcz normal hemoglobin molecule contains 2 beta and 2 alpha chain.
    Defect in each chain lead to thalassemia

    Beta: characterized by genetic deficiency in the synbthesis of beta globin chain

    Alpha: change in the genes for alpha globin production
  • Present before age of 2 years
    Transfusion dependent
  • When theres excessive decrease in the beta globin change leading to decrease adult haemoglobin and as compensatory mechanism the body produce Haemopoisis in the spleen and liver which produce fetal haemoglobin ,then leading to improper delivery of oxygen to the tissue and hepatospleenomegaly,in the other hand the exess alpha chain in RBC precursor produce defect in RBC metabolism and membrane leading to destroying RBC in the extravascular organ like bone marrow
  • Iron overload : Due to excessive rbc destruction
    Jaundice due to excessive unconjugated bilirubin
    Skull deformity due to erythroid hyperplasia and intramedullary expansion and cortical bone thining
    Heart failure due to iron overload and deposition in epicardium
  • To prevent iron overload and decrease risk of heart failure we use iron chelating drugs like deferoxamine

    Spelenectomy to decrease RBC destruction and decrease transfusion requirement, and to prevent complications caused by splenomegaly
  • Why RBC above normal bcz bone marrow try compensate of abnormal Hb
  • Generally develops in first years of life , intial signs may not be noticed until during routingly haematological analysis
    Survive adult to life
  • Electrophresis: showing HbA with 5-40% HbH

    HbH appear in blood film as golf ball like appearance
  • Premaretal screening to identify coules at risk of bearing affected children, by estimating (looking HbA2 and HbF level, prenatal screening allows the couples the choice of termination
    Tests one or two cells from each embryo for a specific genetic abnormality , usese for IVF embryos
     form of assisted reproductive technology that combines preimplantation genetic diagnosis with in vitro fertilization may help parents who have thalassemia or who are carriers of a defective hemoglobin gene give birth to healthy babies
  • Is a type of anemia results from genetic change of Hb due to exchange of Glutamic acid by valine amino acid
    RBCs become rigid and sticky and sickle shape
    RBCs is insoluble and form crystal when expose to low oxygen
    There are not enough healthy RBC to carry adequate oxygen
  • Major symptoms of sickle cells anemia:
    Pain develop when sickle block blood flow through tiny blood vessel to ur chest, abdomen and joints
    Painful swelling due to blocking blood flow
    Sickle cell can damage organs that fight against infection
  • Acute chest syndrome characterized by fever, and difficulty in breathing, caused by lung infection
    Blindness due to chronic blood vessel obstruction
  • Sickling test :
  • Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia, and it occurs when your body doesn’t have enough of the mineral iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin. When there isn’t enough iron in your blood stream, the rest of your body can’t get the amount of oxygen it needs.
    Daily requir ment is 1 mg for male
    And 2 mg for female
  • 2. Malabsorbtion due to hypochloryhydria and diarrhea
