The proposed 3-dimensional mathematical model describes the motion of asymmetrical erythrocytes through capillaries of different sections. The lubrication theory is used to describe the flow of the suspending fluid in the gaps between the cell and the vessel wall. It is shown that the cell velocity and diameter of the capillary defines the value of the resistance of erythrocyte motion.
