decreased production (hypoproliferation), increased destruction, ineffect production (like can't get out of marrow - important for differentiating from other types), acute blood loss, redistribution (like a big spleen - i feel this IS a cause of anemia and should be listed separately even though other anemias also have splenomegaly). -Tom Kelly (Talk) 19:25, 11 February 2007 (CST)
