Hematologic Disorders in Renal Failure
Even though renal failure also affects the function of white blood cells and thrombocytes (1), renal anemia is the only hematologic disturbance of uremia for which well-founded possibilities of therapeutic intervention exist today. The basis for this exceptional and fortunate situation is our advanced understanding of the pathogenesis of renal anemia as well as recent progress in molecular biology. As this book is devoted to therapy, this chapter will restrict itself to renal anemia and its management.
