Abstract

Neutrophil hypersegmentation (NH) is usually associated with vitamin B12 or folic acid deficiency. NH is seen in iron deficiency anemia but there are very few case studies about this. Neutrophil hypersegmentation was evaluated in 94 children with iron deficiency anemia; 23 healthy children comprised the control group with similar ages. NH was found in 76/94 (81%) in the study group and 2/23 (9%) of the control group. The difference was statistically significant (p < .01).
