    Introduction: Iron deficiency is the commonest nutritional deficiency worldwide; it is the most common type of microcytic anemia. Aim: To study the cardiac profile in patients with iron deficiency anemia and to evaluate in detail the electrocardiography and echocardiographic abnormalities in patients with iron deficiency anemia. Methods: An observational study in patients with iron deficiency anemia aged >18 years. All diagnosed cases underwent electrocardiography and 2D-echocardiography studies, and statistical analysis was performed. Results: A total of 140 patients with iron deficiency anaemia were enrolled in which females were 93 with a mean age of 37.34 ± 11.46 and males were 47 with a mean age of 37.9 ± 13.2. Out of all cases which turned out to be positive for electrocardiography showing ST-segment changes, majority 80.2% had ST-segment depression. In t wave m.. Read More»
