A study of red blood cell abnormalities in chronic liver disease
Author(s): Dr. Prashantha Balanthimogru and Dr. Zenobia D Souza
Abstract: In foetal life the liver and spleen are the most important sites of RBC production. Though majority of this function will be transferred to marrow, the nutrients needed for the formation will be dealt in liver itself. The metabolism of heme also occurs in liver up to some extent. So, chronic liver disease is always associated with some red blood disorder. As there are limited number of studies that have been reported in this field this study is one such noble attempt.
