Price-Jones curve

A distribution curve of the measured diameters of red blood cells; it is to the right of the normal curve (i.e., indicating larger diameters) in instances of pernicious anaemia and other forms in which macrocytes are present, and to the left (i.e., indicating smaller diameters) in iron deficiency and other forms of microcytic anaemia.
