A focused approach to anemia.

Abstract

If all the elements of the complete blood cell count are considered in clinical context, they can provide an invaluable guide to the possible causes of a patient's anemia and the tests needed for definitive diagnosis. Unnecessary tests not only add to the expense of treatment but may result in delayed diagnosis and inappropriate treatment in some cases.
