What is the appropriate management for a 1-year-old infant with anemia? Evidence-based answer: Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anemia in an asymptomatic 1-year-old infant, so either further laboratory evaluation (eg, serum ferritin [SF] or reticulocyte hemoglobin concentration [CHr]) or empiric treatment with oral iron are appropriate (SOR: B, cohort studies and expert opinion).
