Oh my God! It feels like the International Hematology Olympics. Where do you guys have this kind of information? Did I miss anything? Is this from Pathoma, cause I haven't done that...

After I did a little research on the internet, my answers are:

1) Pappenheimer bodies;
2) Schistocytes;
3) Burr cells
4) Spur cells

Even though burr and spur cells look the same they are quite different...spur cells have a few projections of varying size and burr cells have regularly and smoothly projections

b) degmacytes(bite cells)-----seen in G6PD deficiency along with heinz bodies
c) pappenheimer bodies(siderocytes with iron)------> seen in sideroblastic anemia
d) gamma gandy bodies----->sclerotic nodules in spleen(seen in cirrhosis)
e) mallory bodies-------> seen in alcoholic liver disease

2Q) which of the following RBC forms can be seen in normal individuals

d) target cells--->seen in THAL(thalassemia,HbC,asplenia,liver diesease)
e) howell jolly bodies------->seen in asplenia

3Q) what RBC forms associated with pyruvate kinase deficiency

a) spur cells/acanthocytes---->have uneven multiple projections,seen in abetalipoproteinemia,liver disease
b) burr cells/echinocytes------->have even and smooth multiple projections ,@ with pyruvate kinase deficiency and chronic renal failure(CRF)
c) cabot rings------->@ with asplenia
d) schistocytes
e) councilman bodies-------->@ with viral hepatitis

4Q) vit.E deficiency is associated with the following

a) heinz bodies
b) basophilic stippling---->@ with lead poisoning(also all microcytic anemias)
c) spur cells----->seen with vit.E depletion(coz abetalipoproteinemia lead to vitamin deficiencies via malabsorption)
d) elliptocyte------>seen with hereditary elliptocytosis
e) tear drop cells ------->seen with myelofibrosis
