Caption: Iron-deficiency anaemia. Light micrograph of red blood cells from a patient suffering from iron- deficiency anaemia. This is caused by a lack of iron, an essential component of haemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying pigment of red blood cells (erythrocytes). The red blood cells in iron- deficiency anaemia are smaller and paler than normal. The lack of iron may be due to a loss of blood, through a digestive disorder such as a stomach ulcer or heavy menstrual periods. Alternatively there may be a lack of iron in the diet. Symptoms include tiredness, dizziness and pale skin. Magnification unknown.
