Abstract : To report the frequency and intensity of anemia in a population of pregnant tunisian women. Our retrospective study concern 200 patients collected from january to july 1999 in a population of pregnancies. Mean age was 30.1 years and 68.5% of patients consult in the third trimester with a 33.5% rate of multiparity. The frequency of anemia is 37.5%. Anemia was ferriprive in 97.3% and hypochromic in 24% of cases. Mean ferritinemia is 4.19 ng/ml after 24 weeks of amenorrhea with a marqued decrease in case of multiparity and pregnancy evolution. Mean transferrinemia is significantly low in anemic (3.98 g/dl) versus non anemic (3.60 g/dl) patients (< 0.05). The comparison of anemia with parity, the delay between two pregnancies and term of pregnancy showed a higher risk with multiparity, short delay between two pregnancies and advanced term. The frequency of anemia in tunisian pregnant women is relatively high, prevention is based on iron supplementation and hygienodietetic advices.
