CBC with megaloblastic anemia

CBC with megaloblastic anemia
====================

  • The CBC here shows a markedly increased MCV, typical for megaloblastic anemia.
  • The MCV can be mildly increased in persons recovering from blood loss or hemolytic anemia, because the newly released RBC’s, the reticulocytes, are increased in size over normal RBC’s, which decrease in size slightly with aging.
