The authors investigated the hematologic parameters in 592 children up to two years of age. By analyzing hemoglobin and hematocrit values, the specific criterions were established for diagnosis of anemia. Iron deficient anemia was found in 12.8% children, which suggest that anemia is still a great health and socioeconomic problem. By examination of every single case, the authors found out that anemia is not a specific entity, but a result of basic aspects of iron metabolism and nutrition.
