Abstract
Iron deficiency remains the most common cause of anemia in infants and children despite increasing availability of iron-fortified foods. We screened out anemia in 9-month old infants in well baby clinic to know the prevalence of anemia and the weaning status. The results were as follows. 1) Among 345 infants screened, 24 infants(7%) were found to have anemia. 2) The king of anemia was microcytic and hypochromic. 3) Among the remaining 311 non-anemic infants, 6 infants(1.9%) revealed microcytosis and 7 infants(2.2%) revealed hypochromia. 4) In anemic group the mean hemoglobin concentration was 8.75¡¾1.03gm/dl, hematocrit was 27.73¡¾3.00%, MCV was 65.84¡¾8.21fL, MCH was 20.95¡¾2.93pg and MCHC was 31.34¡¾1.89gm/dl. 5) In 9 anemic infants, weaning was delayed until 9 months of age.
