INTRODUCTION: Hereditary spherocytosis (HS) is the most common congenital hemolytic anemia, characterized by anemia, jaundice, and splenomegaly. The diagnosis of HS relies on symptoms of hemolysis, a family history of HS, and a positive laboratory test which is usually the osmotic fragility test (OFT). We conducted a study to assess the utility of mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean sphered cell volume (MSCV), and mean reticulocyte volume (MRV) in the diagnosis of HS and if these are helpful in distinguishing cases of HS from immune hemolytic anemia...
