Megaloblastic Anemia

Megaloblastic Anemia

Megaloblastic anemia is a condition in which there is a reduction in the number of circulating red blood cells per cubic millimeter. It exists when hemoglobin content is less than that required to provide the oxygen demands of the body. It is characterized by the presence of megaloblasts (large nucleated, immature progenitors of an abnormal red blood cell series) in the blood.
