Abstract

The spectrum of anemias includes several varieties of subtypes and though each has distinctive characteristics, they seldom show overlapping features due to their specific etiology. This is a rare case of a 49 year old patient who presented with weakness and chronic fatigue with features of haemolytic anemia such as jaundice and elevated LDH levels, but on evaluation showed severe anemia with vitamin B12 deficiency thus having underlying megloblastic anemia.
