Abstract :

 The two most frequent types of microcytic anemia are beta thalassemia trait (β-TT) and iron deficiency anemia (IDA). We retrospectively evaluated the reliability of various indices for differential diagnosis of microcytosis and β-TT in the same patient groups. 

Methods. A total of 50 carefully selected patients with no age restriction were evaluated. We calculated 7 discrimination indices in all patients with hemoglobin (Hb) values of 5.1 to11.6 g/dL. The patient groups were evaluated according to red blood cell (RBC) count; red blood distribution width index, Mentzer, Shine and Lal, England and Fraser, Srivastava, Green and King and Ricerca indices

Results: Most sensitive index was Shine and Lal, followed by Mentzer index.
