This is for my mother who I been concerned about. Would her reports seem acceptable for a smear slide examination? Anisocytosis 1+, ellliptocytes present, ovalocytes present. She developed memory and confusion issues within a month and has a heart valve issue with an ECG that was recorded at 36 bpm at one time.
Thank you doctor,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.
I read your mentioned report in question (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The hemoglobin level is within range. The hematocrit and red blood cells are also within range. So, your mother is not having anemia especially iron-deficiency anemia. Hence, do not worry about anisocytosis, adipocytes and ovalocytes. These all findings need not be given importance because CBC is normal especially Hb level. So do not worry about anisocytosis, adipocytes and ovalocytes. These all reflect mild variation in size and shape of red blood cells.
