Hello, welcome to HCM,
Firstly, normochromic normocytic anemia with mild anisopoikilocytosis indicates an anemia, which may be caused by any condition. Chronic infection is one of them.
Now, about the neutrophil , in chronic disease, there we most commonly find this.
Just wait and watch. When the chronic infective agent has been treated, only then he will get relief from those.
