An obese patient of 57 year old woman has been brought to our outpatient polyclinics of internal medicine department because of adynamia, dyspneae, causalgia of the tongue. Anemia, mild tachycardia, significant vertigo and splenomegaly were present. Pancytopenia was remarkable through the laboratory values. Sternal aspiration was revealing megaloblastic changes. Recognizing the inattentive diet of the patient so as to lose weight which gives rise to the cyanocobalamin deficiency, management by substitution of the vitamin B12 is started for the diagnosis of pernicious anemia.

Keywords: Obese, splenomegaly, pancytopenia, B12, pernicious
