If you’re feeling rundown and short of breath, you may have pernicious anemia, which means you aren't getting enough vitamin B   Pernicious anemia occurs when your body can’t absorb enough vitamin B to function properly. This type of anemia is called “pernicious” because it was once considered a deadly disease. Pernicious anemia is characterized by the presence of an unusually small number of red blood-cells. In average cases they count approximately 1,, to the cubic millimeter. Simply a great reduction in the red corpuscles is not enough, however, to establish a diagnosis of the malady. A large number of megaloblasts is particularly pathognomonic. Addison was the first to clearly describe pernicious anemia as an idiopathic disease, and though there have been many who have doubted that it could exist as a distinct lesion, we will have to admit that there are cases of anemia, when there is no appreciable cause,—cases that have not been preceded by tuberculosis, Bright's disease, malignant growths, renal, hepatic, or splenic affections, wasting diseases.
