[Interest of the dosage of serum ferritin in hemodialyzed patients (author's transl)].

[Article in French]


The ferrous stock evaluation can be done to-day in a repetitive manner through the serum ferritin radio-assay. In 33 hemodialyzed patients, the ferrous lack is frequent and was found with a rate of 62%. It is profound in four cases and concealed in 17 cases. The serum ferritin has no correlation with the ordinary hematologic and biologic parameters. Its value stays in the Ag HBs positive patient. The oral ferrous treatment to the patient with a low ferritin rate (less than 30 ng/ml) induces a ferritin and a hemoglobin rate increased, so confirming the therapeutic efficacy when done with a rational prescription.
