Of the various red cell parameters used for distinguishing iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) from beta-thalassaemia trait BTT, red cell distribution width (RDW), which is an objective measure of the degree of anisocytosis, was examined by us for its discriminating value. RDW was measured in 55 patients of IDA and 56 patients of BTT at presentation with the help of an automated haematology analyser. The mean RDWs in IDA and BTT patients were 18.2 +/- 3.8 and 15.1 +/- 1.2 respectively (P < 0.001). In… CONTINUE READING
