Abstract

Anaemia is a patological state with the disproportion between body’s request of oxygen and restricted erytrocytes’ possibilities to supply oxygen to target organs. Anaemia causes many clinical symptoms from different organs and abnormal values of laboratory tests. Differential diagnosis of anaemia is based on an anamnesis as well as the results of physical examination and basic laboratory tests. Additional laboratory tests, including marrow biopsy and biochemical enzymatic tests are required in the rare cases. Appropriate differential diagnosis of anaemia remains the basis for its further successful treatment.
