Total number of cases was 400.The study duration is for a period of one and half years. The study was carried out at our tertiary care center in Department of Pathology and in patients of clinical departments of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Medical College &amp; Hospital, Jabalpur (M.P.) Patients diagnosed anemia in central laboratory of age above 14 year and Indoor patients in NSCB Medical College &amp; Hospital Jabalpur were included in this study. Ethical permission was taken from Institutional Ethics Committee. Result: In our study 15-25 year of age group are more affected in both females 105 (45.5%) and males 80 (47.3%).
