Abstract

Decreased platelet adhesiveness was found in 7 out of 8 female patients with marked iron deficiency anemia due to menorrhage. Following intravenously administered iron-dextran, the platelet adhesiveness returned to normal in 5 out of 8 patients. The question, whether the iron deficiency state is related to the decreased platelet adhesiveness and the increased menstrual flow is raised.
