Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Iron deficiency anemia is the most common cause of anemia worldwide and results from inadequate iron supply for erythropoiesis. Iron deficiency is most prevalent during periods of rapid body growth: in infancy and again at puberty. Insufficient intake accounts for most cases. The clinical manifestations of iron deficiency anemia can be subtle, but irreversible delayed psychomotor development may occur if the anemia is severe and prolonged. The optimal approach is prevention and early treatment.
