DETECTION OF HOMOZYGOUS HEMOGLOBIN C AFTER THE PRESENCE OF ERYTHROBLASTS
Figure 1. Scattergram WDF (WBC differential) (a) y WNR (white cell nucleated) (b) where the erythroblasts population is indicated.
We present the case of a 40-year-old male patient from Mali who routinely visits his health center.
In the complete blood count highlights a hemoglobin of 14.1 g/dL (Reference Value [RV]: 13.5-17.2) with an erythrocytosis (5.58 x106 RBC/ul, RV: 4-5) and a decreased Mean Corpuscular Volume [MCV](71.3 fL; RV: 80-100) and Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin [MCH] (25 pg; RV: 27-33). Iron profile was normal.
