Sideroblastic Anaemia

Description

 

Sideroblastic anaemia is a disease in which the bone marrow produces ringed sideroblasts rather than healthy red blood cells (erythrocytes).  It may be caused either by a genetic disorder or indirectly as part of myelodysplastic syndrome, which can evolve into hematological malignancies (especially acute myelogenous leukemia). In sideroblastic anemia, the body has iron available but cannot incorporate it into hemoglobin, which red blood cells need to transport oxygen efficiently.
 
Sideroblasts are atypical, abnormal nucleated erythroblasts (precursors to mature red blood cells) with granules of iron accumulated in perinuclear mitochondria.  Sideroblasts are seen in aspirates of bone marrow. Source: Wikipedia
