With to the huge automation in haematology analysers used today, many patients with “abnormal” results will be seen in General Practice. Deciding whether an abnormal result is serious and should be referred can be tricky. In this session I will discuss some of the more common abnormalities seen in General Practice and I will highlight those that can be observed for a while, and those that need referral for a specialist opinion. These abnormalities include those seen in red cells, white cells and platelets. Coagulation abnormalities are outside the scope of this presentation.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Identify iron deficiency and distinguish this from inherited red cell disorders
  • Appreciate the difficulties in diagnosing anaemia of chronic disease which is very common in General Practice and in the hospital setting
  • Diagnose myeloproliferative disease, myelodysplasia and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  • Investigate a paraprotein and decide when to refer for haematology opinion
