Section 1. Development of the Hematopoietic system

# 성인과의 차이점

    1. constant, dramatic changes in hematopoiesis

    2. low oxygen tension but high metabolic rate

    3. sterile intra-amniotic environment

# three anatomic stage

    1. mesoblastic

           ; yolk sac

           ; begins between 16th and 19th days

           ; ceases by 10th~12th wks

    2. hepatic

           ; begins 6 wks

           ; premominant until last trimester

    3. myeloid

           ; *begins by 10th~12 wks

# not simply transfer from yolk sac to liver to marrow

    ; houses quite distinct hematopoietic population

           - at 18-20wks

                   / more than 85% of fetal liver - erythroid

                   / bone marrow

                           : less than 40% - erythroid

                           : up to 15% - neutrophils

Table XXI-1


; no neutrophil until midtrimester

; abundant CFU-GM in liver, bone marrow, blood

    - adult 20~300 CFU-GM/ml

    - term infant 2000 CFU-GM/ml

    - not indicate large total body quantity of CFU-GM

    - low concentration in liver & bone marrow

; low production of G-CSF

    - monocyte generates small quntities of G-CSF & mRNA after LPS or IL-1

    - but same G-CSF receptor

; no granulocytopoiesis in human embryo

    - *due to relative lack of the major neutrophil regulatory growth factor, G-CSF


Erythropoietin (Epo)

    ; regulate erythrocyte production

    ; produced in cell of monocyte/macrophage origin & epithelial cell of glomerular tuft

    ; lack of importance of renal contribution in fetus


    ; more differentiate normoblast

    ; different fashion from adults

           --> more rapidly, more normoblasts

           --> Epo alone

Chapter 411. Physiologic Ameia Of Infancy

Full Term Infant

# Causes

    ; abrupt cessation of erythropoiesis with onset of respiration at birth

           - why?

                   / liver is major site of EPO production in neonatal periods

                           --> insensitivity to EPO release with tissue hypoxia

                   / decreased half-life of EPO but increased volume of distribution in newborn

    ; shortened survival of fetal RBC

  ; sizable expansion accompanying rapid weight gain during the 1st 3mo

    ; red cell function is influenced by the higher level of serum phosphate

           --> increase red cell phosphate & 2,3 DPG

           --> facilitating oxygen release

           --> decreasing tissue hypoxia

==> “marginal erythropoietic eqilibrium”

Premature Infant

    ; *more extreme & rapid

           - 7-9g/dl by 3-6wks commonly

           - why ?

                   / frequent phlebotomies

                   / inability to produce compensatory amounts of EPO

                   / dietary factor

                           : folic acid deficiency

                           : vitamin E deficiency

                           : iron deficiency

    ; Treatment

           - recombinant human EPO

                   / 200IU/kg tiw 200-250IU/kg tiw sc

Chapter 419. Hemogloblin Disorder

Hemoglobin Structural Abnormalities

 -500 structural variants of Hb have been identified

 -many abnormal Hb identified by electrophoresis but cannot be specifically identified by      this              means alone

419.1 Sickle Cell Hemoglobulinopathy

 -A substitution of glutamic acid at the 6th position of its beta chain by valine

 -In the oxygenated state HbS functions normally

 --->spiny, brittle character of sickle erythrocytes under condition of hemoglobin is          deoxygenated

-erythrocytes of sickle cell trait resistent to invasion by                

 malaria parasites (plasimodium falciparum)

Sickle Cell Anemia

 -characterized by severe chronic hemolytic disease

 -attributable to ischemic changes resulting from vascular occlusion  by masses of sickled cells

Clinical Manifestation

    ; hemolytic anemia gradually develops over the 1st 2-4mo

    ; other features

           - *uncommon prior to 5-6mo

    ; *hand foot syndrome

           - Acute sickle dactylitis

    - *1st overt evidence of sickle cell ds in infancy

    ; acute painful vaso-occlusive episodes

       - *frequently and prominent manifestation

           - in young children : involves the exetremities

           - in olrer children : involves head, chest, abdomen, back

    ; more extensive vaso-occlusive events

       - infarct of bone marrow and bone

       splenic infarct->autosplenectomy

       cerebrovascular occlusion

       ischemic damage to myocardium, liver,and kidneys

    ; Acute Splenic Sequestration

           - *infants & young children

        - large amounts of blood acutely pooled in the spleen

                   --> massive enlarged spleen

         --> signs of circulatory collapse rapidly developed

    ; increased susceptibility to infection

           - meningitis, sepsis

           - *mainly pneumococcal, H. influenza

           - due to

                   altered splenic function

                   deficient level of serum opsonin against pneumococci

Laboratory Finding

Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemias

# Hallmark

    ; positive coomb’s test

Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemias Associated With Warm Antibodies


 -Chronic nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia isoimmune hemolytic anemia 

-abnomal antibodies are directed against red cells  but the pathogenetic

-The autoantibody may be produced as an inappropriate immune response to a red cell -

-If the autoimmune hemolysis associated with an underlying disease such as

     a lymphoprolifeative disorder, systemic lupus erythematosus, or immunodeficiency

-In as many as 20% of cases of immune hemolysis, drugs may be implicated

    "hapten" mechanism (e.g, penicillin or sometimes cephalosporins)

-Antibodies to the drug either newly or previously formed, bind, such as quinine and                         quinidine,

-"tertiary complex  α-Methyldopa true autoantibodies

-The onset may prostration pallor, jaundice pyrexia, and hemoglobinuria, primarily fatigue and pallor

-The spleen is usually enlarged primary site for destruction of Ig-G- coated red cells

-A consistent response  to glucocorticoid therapy, low mortality, and full recovery are                      characteristic of the acute form

-a prolonged and chronic more frequent in infants and in children older than 12yr

-Hemolysis may continue for many months or response to glucocorticoids is variable -Mortality is about 10% often attributable to an underlying systemic disease

-In many cases the anemia is profound, hemolglobin levels <6g/dL

-Considerable spherocytosis and polychromasia are present

-More than 50% of the circulating red cells may be reticulocytes, nucleated red cells


-The platelet count is usually normal, concomitant immune thrombocytopenic purpura

(Evans     syndrome) 

-The prognosis of patients with Evans syndrome is poor, many develop chronic disease,

 including some with systemic lupus erythematosus

-The direct Coombs test is strongly positive, belong to the IgG class

-particularly C3b, may be detected on the red cells in conjunction with IgG


    ; Transfusions usually are only of transient benefit

    ; *Glucocorticoids

           - Prednisone 2 mg/kg/24hr

                   / some patients with severe hemolysis, does up to 6mg/kg/24hr

    ; intravenous immunoglobulin and danazol

           - if hemolytic anemia remains severe despite glucocorticoid therpapy

                   or very large doses are necessary to maintain a reasonable hemoglobin

    ; splenectomy

    ; immunosuppressive agents

    ; plasmapheresis

Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemias Associated With Cold Antibodies

-Red cell antibodies that are more active at low temperature agglutinated red cells at        temperatures below 37  C have "cold" antibodies  They are primarily of the IgM

    Cold antibodies specificity for the oligosaccharide antigens of the I/i system

-idiopathic cold agglutinin secondary to infection such as Mycoplasma pneumoniae and                                    infectious mononuclesis, or secondary to lymphoproliferative

-The mean corpuscular volume (MCV) mav be spuriously elevated   The severtiy of the                                      hemolysis is related to the thermal amplitude of th antibody

-Cold agglutinin disesse is less common in children than in adults, and it more frequently                results in an acute, self-limited episode of hemolysis

-Glucocorticoids are much less effective in cold aggulutinin dz

 -should avoid esposure to cold and be treated for any undrelying disease

-infrequent patients with severe hemolytic disease the treatment immunosuppression and plasmapheresis

-splenectomy is not useful in cold agglutinin disease

-mediated by the donath Landstediner hemolysin, an IgG cold-reactive autoantibody with                                   anti-P specificity

-self-limited and are associated with viral infections, and they are now rarely seen            associaed with congenital or acquired syphilis

-Treatmaent include transfusions for severe anemia and avoidance of cold ambient          temperatures

  half life;

    - about 60 min in adult,

    - 30 min in the newborn

    - half life of heparin is dose dependent

        ---> the higher dose, the longer the circulating half life

    - shorter than normal in patients with thromboembolitic ds

    - longer than normal in patients with cirrhosis and uremia

    - intravenous or subcutaneous, not effective orally

       should not be given as an IM injection

    - 2가지 투여 방법

      1) intermittent schedule : 75-100 mg units/kg by bolus every 4 hr

      2) continuous infusion; a bolus injecting of 50-75 units/kg

                   followed by a continuous infusion of 10-25 units/kg/hr

                   - continuous method anticoagulant-related bleeding 적은 것으                          알려져 있다



    the most frequently used test for monitoring heparin therapy

    maintained at 1 5-2 times the patient's own preheparin control a PTT

1) the intermittent schedule;

  ->  aPTT determined 1 hr after initial infusion; greatly prolonged at that time

  ->  the next aPTT performed at the 4th hr just prior to the next dose 0

       at that time, should be 5-10 sec longer than the  normal control time

  ->  if the aPTT very prolonged, reduced by 10%

    if the aPTT within the normal range, increased 10%

   -> the test repeated 4 hr later

 2) the continuous schedule;

   -> aPTT performed at any time 4 hr after the continuous infusion

   -> the desired result is 1.5-2.0 times the patients pretreatment value

       dose adjustment of 5-10% during this period

  heparin can be neurtralized immediately by using protamine sulfate

   1 mg of protamine sulfate neutralizes 90-110 units of heparin

   ->그러나 heparin rapid clearance rate 가지기 때문에 대개는 heparin infusion 중지       하는 것으로 충분하고, protamine 쓴다면 계산된 양의 1/2 사용해도 충분하다
