ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion on the skewness of volume distribution curves of erythrocytes. Volume distribution curves of erythrocytes, obtained by automatic cell counting, are skew, the right side being flatter than the left one, indicating a greater than normal population of larger cells. This is in contrast to the familiar Price-Jones curves which show a more symmetrically bell-shaped distribution, as expected from a normal homogenous population. So far the skewness has been attributed to presence of white cells, mathematical distortion due to change from linear to cubic scale, and to coincidence, when two cells are counted as one larger one.
