Hyperthyroidism as an under-recognised reversible cause of microcytosis

Eyzaguirre Valencia Mario , Kyaw Ye , Chinnasamy Eswari

Introduction: Hypothyroidism is a well-recognised cause of macrocytosis, but microcytosis is not widely recognised to be associated with hyperthyroidism. Thyroid abnormalities are often associated with various haematological changes and Graves’ disease has been reported to be mimicking beta thalassaemia trait in the literature. We discuss two cases of microcytosis related to hyperthyroidism that fully resolved once euthyroidism was achieved.Case 1: ...

Introduction: Pseudohyperkalaemia is one of the most common testing errors that occur in clinical practice. It’s commonly due to pre-analytical factors many of which are clinically well recognised. These include incorrect sampling, delay in sample processing and haemolysis to name a few. However non-recognition of some rarer causes like thrombocytosis often results in initial inappropriate, potentially dangerous treatment. Here we present one such case of pseudohyperkalaemia i...

NICE guideline (NG132) published in May 2019 on PHPT recommends renal US in all patients. The value of renal ultrasound for all patients with PHPT has been debated. This audit aims to compare local practice to NICE guideline (NG132) and to see if a tailored approach for renal ultrasound would be safe, practical and e...
