Hyperferritinemia in a Case of Soft Tissue Sarcoma
International Journal of Medical and Pharmaceutical Case Reports,
An elderly male presented with symptoms suggestive of anemia. During workup for the same he was found to have very high levels of serum Ferritin along with a normocytic, normochromic peripheral blood film and no other apparent cause for hyperferritinemia .A swelling which incidentally found on his shin was further investigated by FNAC confirmed presence of soft tissue sarcoma.
- soft tissue sarcoma.
