Red Blood Cell Inclusion Bodies

Red Blood Cell Inclusion Bodies

Introduction Red blood cell (RBC) morphology plays a crucial role in diagnosing hematological disorders. By examining the size, shape, and presence of RBC inclusion bodies, clinicians gain valuable insights into the underlying cause of abnormal blood function. RBC...
Red Blood Cell (RBC) Morphology

Red Blood Cell (RBC) Morphology

Introduction The unique red blood cell (RBC) morphology plays an important role in the optimal function of RBC as an oxygen transporter. This biconcave disc-shape offers a high surface area to volume ratio, allowing for efficient diffusion of oxygen molecules into and...
Leukocytosis

Leukocytosis

Introduction Leukocytosis can be defined as a condition where you have an increased white blood cell (WBC) count in the blood. White blood cells, also known as leukocytes, are a critical part of the body’s immune system and help fight infection and inflammation....
Drug-Induced Immune Hemolytic Anemia (DIIHA)

Drug-Induced Immune Hemolytic Anemia (DIIHA)

Introduction Drug-induced immune hemolytic anemia (DIIHA) is a rare condition where a medication triggers your body’s immune system to attack your own red blood cells (RBCs). This attack leads to the premature destruction of RBCs, a process called hemolysis....
Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA)

Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA)

What is autoimmune hemolytic anemia? Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is a rare blood disorder where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own red blood cells. Red blood cells are essential for carrying oxygen throughout the body. In AIHA, the immune...
