Anemia in the elderly.

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Controversy exists about the occurrence of an age-related decline in hematologic parameters. The etiology of anemia in elderly patients is often confounded by chronic and inapparent disease. The diagnosis is assisted by knowledge of the clues to the causes of hypoproliferative anemia, ineffective hematopoiesis and hemolysis.
