Clinical Classification

Clinical Information

  • Elliptocytosis

    a peripheral blood finding in which a large number of erythrocytes are shaped in an elliptical form.
  • Hereditary Elliptocytosis|Hereditary Ovalocytosis

    an inherited blood disorder in which a large number of red blood cells have an elliptical morphology.
  • SPTA1 wt Allele|Alpha-I Spectrin Gene|EL2|Elliptocytosis 2 Gene|HPP|HS3|SPH3|SPTA|Spectrin Alpha Chain, Erythrocyte Gene|Spectrin Alpha, Erythrocytic 1 wt Allele|Spectrin, Alpha, Erythrocytic 1 (Elliptocytosis 2) Gene|Spectrin, Alpha, Erythrocytic 1 Gene

    human spta1 wild-type allele is located in the vicinity of 1q23.1 and is approximately 76 kb in length. this allele, which encodes spectrin alpha chain, erythrocytic 1 protein, plays a role in erythrocyte membrane morphology. mutations in the gene are associated with elliptocytosis-2, hereditary pyropoikilocytosis and type 3 spherocytosis.

Inclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
  • Elliptocytosis (congenital)
  • Ovalocytosis (congenital) (hereditary)

Patient Education


If you have anemia, your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body. The most common cause of anemia is not having enough iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that gives the red color to blood. It carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.

Anemia has three main causes: blood loss, lack of red blood cell production, and high rates of red blood cell destruction.

Conditions that may lead to anemia include:

  • Heavy periods
  • Pregnancy
  • Ulcers
  • Colon polyps or colon cancer
  • Inherited disorders
  • A diet that does not have enough iron, folic acid or vitamin B12
  • Blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, or cancer
  • Aplastic anemia, a condition that can be inherited or acquired
  • G6PD deficiency, a metabolic disorder

Anemia can make you feel tired, cold, dizzy, and irritable. You may be short of breath or have a headache.

Your doctor will diagnose anemia with a physical exam and blood tests. Treatment depends on the kind of anemia you have.
