Microcytosis sometimes associated to hypochromia is a laboratory finding which occurs in several disorders. The ethiopathogenesis is referred to a modification of hemoglobin production, which induces in turn a reduction of the mean corpuscolar volume of erythrocytes (RBC). In this view microcytosis can be considered a compensatory mechanism in order to re-establish the correct proportions between the RBC volume and hemoglobin content. The several disorders in relationship to microcytosis have a common iron metabolism de- arrangement. The aim of this study was to establish the incidence of microcytosis in a large canine population considering 2,301 complete blood count. Moreover, the frequency of disorders occurring in microcytemic dogs and the relationship with the modification of other hematological parameters have been investigated.

Abstract

Microcytosis sometimes associated to hypochromia is a laboratory finding which occurs in several disorders. The ethiopathogenesis is referred to a modification of hemoglobin production, which induces in turn a reduction of the mean corpuscolar volume of erythrocytes (RBC). In this view microcytosis can be considered a compensatory mechanism in order to re-establish the correct proportions between the RBC volume and hemoglobin content. The several disorders in relationship to microcytosis have a common iron metabolism de- arrangement. The aim of this study was to establish the incidence of microcytosis in a large canine population considering 2,301 complete blood count. Moreover, the frequency of disorders occurring in microcytemic dogs and the relationship with the modification of other hematological parameters have been investigated.
