My daughter of 4 years age underwent ultrasound examination yesterday and identified with altered liver parenchymal echotexture with mild IHBRD-adverse LFT correlation and also the bood test results are observed with haemoglobin (10 gms%), PCV (32.2 VoL%), MCV (73.7 fL), polymorphs (63%), lymphocytes (25%), eosinophils (10%). What do all these mean? What kind of problem she is facing?

thank not mention why did you go for these investigation. if i consider the hematological test(low Hb & PCV,low MCV though MCH not known) then your baby is suffering from microcytic hypochromic anemia. the main causes are thalassemia,iron deficiency anemia,sideroblastic anemia & anemia of chronic it should be evaluated properly by physical exam. & some relevant iron profile & Hb electrophoresis.
Now,the altered liver parenchymal echotexture with mild IHBRD should be evaluated. this does not match with the hematological abnormality. LFT should be done & it should be correlated with the USG need opinion of both a hematologist & a hepatologist.
