Vitamin B12 deficiency may manifest as:

  • Hyperchromic macrocytic megaloblastic anaemia (pernicious anaemia, Biermer's anaemia, Addison anaemia; these are maturation disorders of red blood cells).
  • Funicular spinal disease (spinal cord damage)

Vitamin B12 deficiency confirmed by laboratory diagnosis can occur due to:

  • Years of malnutrition (e.g. due to a strictly vegetarian diet).
  • Malabsorption (insufficient absorption of vitamin B12 in the intestine) due to
    • insufficient production of intrinsic factor (a protein produced in the lining of the stomach that is needed to absorb vitamin B12),
    • disorders in the end section of the ileum (part of the small intestine), such as sprue,
    • fish tapeworm infestation or
    • blind loop syndrome (change in the course of the intestine after gastric surgery).
  • Congenital vitamin B12 transport disorders.

At the start of treatment, 1 ml (1 ampoule) of Vitamin B12-Depot-Injektopas® 1500 µg (equivalent to 1500 µg hydroxocobalamin acetate) is administered twice a week for the first few weeks after diagnosis.
If there is evidence of vitamin B12 uptake disorder in the intestine, 100 µg cyanocobalamin are then administered once a month.
