Background The COVID-19 pandemic has affected blood transfusion services globally. A drastic reduction in blood donation has been observed with potential donors hindered by apprehension and confusion. This study was conducted to assess knowledge, attitude and practice related to blood donation among non-medical working professionals, with an emphas...
Pseudothrombocytopenia (PTCP) is a rare phenomenon of falsely low platelet count on automated analyzers due to in-vitro platelet agglutination in blood samples having calcium chelating anticoagulants, especially ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). The presence of large platelet aggregates on peripheral smear examination and normalization of pla...
Introduction: Thrombocytopenia (TCP) is defined as a platelet count below 1,50,000 per microliter. This fall can be attributed to increased destruction, decreased production in bone marrow and pooling of platelets. A good knowledge of the cause and clinical course of the underlying pathology as reflected by the platelet indices contributes to the b...
Rosai-Dorfam disease (RDD) also known as sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy (SHML) is a rare self-limited and benign disease. The clinical features in the classical form include slowly enlarging painless massive lymphadenopathy, fever, leukocytosis, anemia, hypergammaglobulinemia and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). We r...
Renomedullary interstitial cell tumours, previously known as medullary fibromas are rare benign tumors of the kidney, found as an incidental finding during surgery for other renal lesions or in autopsy. Kidney stone disease is a well known entity, the prevalence of which has been increasing over the past few decades due to modern dietary habits and...
1. To study the relationship of platelet indices in adult patients with respect to the underlying mechanism of thrombocytopenia. 2. To correlate the variation in platelet indices with the severity of thrombocytopenia.
