Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)


This sample shows RBC microcytosis and is further characterized by anemia and a decreased MCHC (< 30 g/dL). The RBC and WBC counts are relatively normal, this in combination with an increased platelet count. Review of the graphical displays does not reveal anything of major note and even, despite the low MCV, the separation between the platelets and RBC (lower left plot) is still perfect. This profile is consistent with iron deficiency anemia (IDA), but supplementary investigations would be required to confirm this.
