Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Positive errors in hemoglobin (Hb) measurements as read on automatic counters have been reported with high white blood cell counts, probably due to turbidity. We report here a case of spuriously high Hb values due to a milky plasma, caused by hypertriglyceridemia.
