Patient : I had taken my daughter to her 12 month well baby check up today. Her HgB level was 7.1. 2 weeks prior I had her seen for a 5 day high fever no other signs or symptoms. A CBC was done than and her level of hgB was 10. What would cause this drop in hemoglobin. No obvious bleeding has occurred.
