Abstract

Iron deficiency anaemia is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies disorder worldwide. It is characterized by symptoms like fatigue, weakness, pallor and koilonychias. Oral mucosa can reflect the general status of the patient and these signs can sometimes precede general symptoms. Oral mucosal pigmentations and depapillationof tonguecan also be an initial presentation in iron deficiencies anaemia. Thus, dentists play an important role in early diagnosis of anemia enabling a prompt referral in certain cases. With this background we report a case of iron deficiency anaemia with oral manifestations.
