Platelets Count


Useful in the evaluation and diagnosis of bleeding disorders, leukaemia states, disseminated intravascular coagulation, purpura and drug induced thrombocytopenia.


Platelet count is reduced in malignancies, cytotoxic chemotherapy, autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura, splenomegaly and multiply transfused patients, hereditary diseases such as Wiscott-Aldrich syndrome, Fanconi’s syndrome, Chediak-Higashi anomaly and Bernard-Soulier syndrome. Increased platelets counts are seen in chronic hemorrhage, essential thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera, vasculitides, inflammatory disorders and post-splenectomy.
