The study aimed to evaluate & correlate oral manifestations of iron deficiency anemia& their haematological laboratory values. Our results demonstrated a strong association of oral manifestation along with haematological values. The results of the present study are encouraging and they substantiate the concept that oral signs can be used to evaluate the hemoglobin & ferritin levels in the set-ups with limited laboratory facilities. Our results confirmed that oral manifestations were highly sensitive & specific to predict the haematological& serum ferritin status of patients. The severity of these manifestations were strongly associated with reduced serum ferritin & hemoglobin also it was observed that certain signs like cheilitis & complete glossitis were late indicators of iron deficiency anemia.
