1/ Can hemolytic anemia exist with no reticulocytosis?

2/ We've all been taught that hemolysis and hemorrhage are accompanied by a compensatory marrow response which leads to reticulocytosis and a slight increase in MCV (reticulocytes are larger than your average RBC).
But what if hemolysis co-existed with reticulocytopenia?
3/ A 46 y.o. M with no significant PMH and PSH presented after he noticed a change in his urine color (darker) for the past wk. He mentions that the last 2 times he tried to donate blood in the past year, he was told he was too anemic to donate. Prior to this, no issues donating.

#HematologyTweetstory #6: the ‘pawn ball megakaryocyte’. We’ll revisit Dr. Frankenstein from Tweetstory #1, discover the origin of Santa Claus, and travel from Boston to Las Vegas – a flight the clever guys from the MIT Blackjack Team used to make every Friday. #hematopathology/1
‘Pawn ball’ megakaryocytes have 3 distinct nuclear lobes; this is abnormal. The first reference I’ve found that uses this term is a 1984 @BloodJournal paper by David Rosenthal & William C. Moloney (1907-1991). Dr Rosenthal @DanaFarber led @Harvard Health Services until 2011/2
Moloney, who became the champion of the 'pawn ball meg.' concept, came from @TuftsMedicalCtr & the old Boston City Hospital to become hematology chief at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital (now @BrighamWomens) in 1966. He continued to work until he turned 90 in 1997. @BrighamHeme /3
