Splenomegaly exacerbates anemia by exposing erythrocytes to an environment that is relatively hypoxic and acidic. Metabolically compromised cells, such as those deficient in glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) can suffer severe splenic sequestration. Hemolysis is magnified in this circumstance. The spleen also has a prominent representation of reticuloendothelial cells. Antibody-coated erythrocytes that linger in the splenic sinusoids neither live long nor prosper. Hepatomegaly occurs with primary liver disorders such as acute hepatitis.

Other cases of anemia reflect a complex interplay between the disease process and the erythropoietic machinery. 4 The fact that so many disorders common in older people produce concurrent anemia makes inevitable the rise in the incidence of anemia with age. The key question with respect to age and anemia is whether advancing age per se produces anemia. If the answer is “no” then anemia in an older person reflects a concomitant and perhaps cryptic disorder whose nature should be uncovered. ” On the other hand, should aging alone produce anemia, a less vigorous pursuit of etiology might be reasonable in such a patient.
