Normocytic Anemia – Red Blood Cell Pathology (RBC)

by Carlo Raj, MD

Normocytic anemia is a type of anemia in which the circulating red blood cells (RBCs) have a normal mean corpuscular volume (normocytic). Normocytic anemia is rarely a primary blood disorder; more often, it represents a response to other underlying diseases. Usually, all that is required for a diagnosis is a thorough history, physical exam, and targeted laboratory testing. Management depends primarily on treating the underlying cause of anemia. The differential diagnosis can be quite broad, so clinical suspicion for alternative causes should be considered when patients present abnormally or do not respond to standard treatment.

because its helping me review my basics as well as adding into my information, and it goes hand in hand with my USMLE step 1

Literally the way that I was hoping that my medical school would present it. Logical, succinct, linear, and perfect. No overcrowded slides with low yield minutia presented in an unorganized manner from well meaning but overexcited PhD's. Just the good stuff, just what's relevant and what you absolutely have to know in the order that you have to know it. Perfect.
