Reticulocytes Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia


A 76 year old man had severe anemia and a disproportionately low RBC count. MCV count was strongly increased, due to the massive reticulocytosis. The percentage of reticulocytes was suppressed by the CELL-DYN Ruby because it exceeded the upper limit of 23 %. Manual examination revolved a reticulocyte percentage of 35.
