Blood smear shows hypochromia, microcytosis, marked anisocytosis, fragmented and nucleated red cells, polychromasia and occasionally immature leukocytes.
The bird had a mild regenerative anemia (packed cell volume [PCV] 34%; 48% [+ or -] 5%; range, 39%-55%), characterized by polychromasia and anisocytosis and a mild hypoproteinemia (3.2 g/dL; 6.3 [+ or -] 1.7 g/dL; range, 4.4-10.5 g/dL).
This has been aptly summarised in a review article.37 Citing a study38 which showed that a strong and direct relationship exists between the degree of anisocytosis (i.e.
In our case, severe cellular pleomorphic changes such as prominent anisocytosis and anisonucleosis in numerous basal cells, sebocytic differentiations in fewer cells and presence of mitotic figures led us to the diagnosis of sebaceous carcinoma.
The blood picture revealed hypochromasia, poikilocytosis and anisocytosis. Serum biochemistry showed elevated blood urea nitrogen (BUN) (112.30 mg/dl), creatinine (3.5 mg/dl) and also showed normal total protein (7.0 g/dl), albumin (2.8 g/dl), alanine amino transferase (ALT) (34 IU/dl), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) (103 IU/dl), glucose (85 mg/dl), potassium (4.2 mEq/dl) and phosphorus (4.6 mg/dl).
The FBC with a smear revealed hypochromic anaemia (Hb 7.1 g/dL) with marked anisocytosis and moderate sickle cells.
On differential count, there is significant rise in absolute neutrophil count (P < 0.005), significant fall in absolute lymphocyte count (P < 0.005), and rise in eosinophil and basophil count which is not statistically significant, not much difference in monocyte count in both groups, associated poikilocytosis and anisocytosis of red blood cells in anemic subjects, and N/L ratio is significantly higher in the anemics (P < 0.001).
When different red cell sizes are observed (anisocytosis) in the peripheral blood smear, RDW values are elevated and this elevation is said to be associated with recurrent pregnancy loss (4, 5).
It also revealed anisocytosis, microcytosis, and hypochromia; white blood cells were leucocytes 9700/[mm.sup.3], banded neutrophils 6%, segmented neutrophils 76%, and lymphocytes 10%.
