Because abnormal zinc protoporphyrin is an indicator of iron deficiency in the absence of elevated lead levels, researchers reviewed levels of the indicator in screening data from children ages 8-18 months at Boston Medical Center between January 2002 and December 2010.
In that situation, some of the newer tests of iron status may be of value in the differentiation of IDA and AI, in particular measurement of serum-soluble transferrin receptors (sTfr) and red cell zinc protoporphyrin (ZPN).
The patient's postchelation blood lead and zinc protoporphyrin levels were 81 [micro]g/dL and 125 [micro]g/dL, respectively, and bone lead levels measured by a K-x-ray fluorescence (KXRF) instrument revealed tibia (cortical) and patella (trabecular) bone lead levels of 210 and 660 [micro]g/g bone mineral, respectively.
