Case 22 – the beginning

Welcome back to TeamHaem. This case will help you to develop your differential diagnosis and investigation of an abnormal FBC .

You (haematologist, med student, pharmacist, med reg, or other) are asked to offer an opinion on a patient on the liver ward who has the following results:

Hb 88, MCV 102, PLTS 39, WBC 1.1.

Without any more information to assist you at this time, what are your differentials in a ‘liver patient’?
