Abstract

SCHAPKAITZ, E; BULDEO, S  and  MAHLANGU, J N. Diagnosis of iron deficiency anaemia in hospital patients: Use of the reticulocyte haemoglobin content to differentiate iron deficiency anaemia from anaemia of chronic disease. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2016, vol.106, n.1, pp.53-54. ISSN 2078-5135.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/SAMJ.2016.V106I1.9934.
