Abstract

We aim to investigate the prevalence and characteristics of anaemia among the patients in the hospital based study in Aseer province. A total of 41 patients were studied. The patient selection was random and non consecutive. 87.8% (n=36) were male and 12.2 % (n=5) were females. 58.5% patients were anemic. Analysis of patients with anemia revealed 45.8% patients had diabetes mellitus, 54.16% patients had hypertension and 20.83% of patient had anemia of chronic kidney disease. 54.1% patients had microcytic anemia, 45.9% patients had normocytic anemia and none of the patients had macrocytic anemia. Anemia in hospitalized patients has become an increasingly frequent diagnosis, and its prevalence correlates with the number of comorbidities presented. It is significantly associated with the increased risk of mortality in hospitalized patients
