The iron status of anaemic pregnant Igbo women in Nigeria.
Trop Geogr Med 1981; 33(2):129-33TG

Abstract

The iron status of 120 anaemic pregnant Igbo women was investigated. Of the 120 patients whose haemoglobin was less than 10%, 30 (25%) had iron deficiency anaemia; 89 (74%) had megaloblastic anaemia (most probably due to folate deficiency), while 1 had Hb sickle cell disease. Malaria parasites were detected in only 7.5% of our patients, and seemed not to have a important factor in the causation of anaemia.
