Blood and Lymphatic Systems Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

condition characterized by reduction of red blood cells, a deficiency of hemoglobin and hematocrit in the blood, or an increased destruction of red blood cells. Anemia
(aplastic anemia) failure of the normal process of cell generation and development. Aplasia
platelet count below 100,000 mm3. Thrombocytopenia
grave coagulopathy resulting from the over stimulation of the normal clotting and clot dissolution processes in response to disease or injury, DIC
abnormal increase in the number of circulating red blood cells and also increased production of granulocytes and platelets. Erythrocytosis
a condition capable of causing great injury, destruction, or death unless treated. Pernicious
reduction or absence of all three major blood elements (red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets) from the bone marrow. Pancytopenic
absence of anti-hemophilic factor VIII; essential for conversion of prothrombin to thrombin through intrinsic clotting pathway. Hemophilia_A
excessive bone marrow production of myeloid cells (includes RBC, platelets, granulocytes and agranulocytes). Myeloproliferative
having two different genes Heterozygous
having two identical genes inherited from each parent for a given hereditary characteristic. Homozygous
malignant neoplastic immunodeficiency disease of the bone marrow. Multiple_myeloma
primary or secondary disorder characterized by the accumulation of lymph fluid in soft tissue, resulting in edema. Lymphedema
inflammation of one or more lymphatic vessels or channels that usually results from an acute streptococcal or staphylococcal infection in an extremity. Lymphangitis
cause unknown. Idiopathic
low white blood cell count. Leukopenia
malignant disorder of the hematopoietic system in which an excess of leukocytes accumulates in the bone marrow and lymph nodes. Leukemia
