Abstract

IDA is the anaemia most frequently diagnosed in an Internal Medicine Department followed by HA and ACD. Clinical symptoms and the type of anaemia have poor correlation. In IDA upper digestive endoscopy as well as lower digestive tract examination is mandatory. We propose colonoscopy in patients aged more than 50-years whereas barium enema could be employed in younger people.
