2007: S16B Regenerative Anemia

Peripheral blood smear examination for polychromasia. Polychromasia refers to the blue-grey RBC seen in Wright's stained blood smears. These are young, large RBC with residual RNA.

Hematology of Lower Vertebrates, by T. W. Campbell; P1214.1104

The degree of polychromasia is a good indicator of the erythrocytic regenerative response. For example, anemic birds showing ten percent or greater polychromasia [3+ or 4+ polychromasia] are demonstrating a good regenerative response to their anemia.

Nucleated RBCs—Significance in the Peripheral Blood Film

In cases oftransient increases in oxygen demand (a hypoxic stimulus), normoblastemia, if present, disappears with reliefofthe hypoxia. 24 Accordingly, a hypoxic stimulus should be suspected whenever normoblastemia is accompanied by a normal to high hemoglobin level and mild to moderate polychromasia.

Anemia and Leukocytosis Answers

Many sickle cells, polychromasia, occasional target cells. Also a few activated lymphs (? viral infection triggered sickle crisis) A diagnosis of the "process" is readily made by inspection of the smear in this case but what additional test(s) are needed to establish the specific cause (etiology)?
