PronunciationEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Ancient Greek ἀν- (an-, not) + αἷμα (haîma, blood) +‎ -ia; those roots are the basis of the New Latin combining forms an- + -aemia/-emia.

NounEdit

anemia (countable and uncountable, plural anemias or anemiae or anemiæ)

  1. (American, uncountable, pathology) A medical condition in which the capacity of the blood to transport oxygen to the tissues is reduced, either because of too few red blood cells, or because of too little hemoglobin, resulting in pallor and fatigue.
  2. (countable, pathology) A disease or condition that has anemia as a symptom.
    Pernicious anemia and sickle-cell anemia are two anemias.
  3. (obsolete) Ischemia. [19th to mid-20th c.]

Usage noteEdit

In 21st century medical terminology, anemia never means ischemia, although in 19th through mid-20th century medical usage, it sometimes did.
