Term Detail
MP term:abnormal erythrocyte morphology
Synonym: abnormal definitive erythrocyte
Synonym: abnormal red blood cell morphology
Synonym: abnormal red corpuscle morphology
Synonym: erythrocyte abnormalities
Synonym: red blood cell abnormalities
MP id: MP:0002447
Alternate id: MP:0002124
Definition: any structural anomaly of a mature red blood cell, an ennucleate biconcave disk about 7 micrometers in diameter that contains hemoglobin confined within a lipid membrane; it is the major cellular element of the circulating blood and transports oxygen as its principal function
