Anemia is clinical common event. In this study, a retrospective survey of 30 different types of anemias will attempt to place in proper interpretative review for their treatment outcome. By using comprehensive treatment regimen according to patients’ condition, 20 patients obtained cure or complete remission (CR). Iron supplement was provided in 5 iron deficiency anemia. One megaloblastic anemia required the prescribed the supplement of vitamin B12 or folate deficiency. Steroid hormone (e.g. prednisone) mixed traditional medicine were occasionally promising benefits in a nephrotic syndrome and renal insufficiency. Among 2 cases with drug-induced immune hemolytic anemia (DIIHA), laboratory studies a patient's serum contained paracetamol-dependent antibody that agglutinated in vitro with "O" red cells with or without complement. The reactive mechanism was attributed to both immune complex type and drug-adsorption, whereas another herb Origanum vulgare- induced hemolysis secondary to drug adsorption only. In addition, regarding anemia caused by malignant tumours, the molecular genetic regulation of retinoic acid in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) has been further illustrated (see figure in full text). Therefore, to strength the active prevention and/or early interceptive treatment of anemia is our care.
