The article presents the results of a retrospective analysis of medical records of patients treated at the Children’s city hospital №1 in Samara. We carried out a complex analysis of the general blood test and iron metabolism in order to identify the prevalence of anemia. We revealed high prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in a group of children aged 0-3 years, and we also found a group of children with latent iron deficiency.
