Hematological and Morphological Changes in the Peripheral Blood Smear of Patients with COVID-19

J Kermanshah Univ Med Sci

Background: The novel coronavirus is responsible for a widespread pandemic, causingmultiple clinicalmanifestations. Peripheral blood films have shown changes in white blood cell (WBC) morphology and counts, as well as platelet abnormalities. Atypical and reactive lymphocytes may also be observed in the blood film, which suggests mild leukoerythroblastosis. Objectives: The present study aimed to evaluate the hematological and morphological changes in the peripheral blood smear of patients with COVID-19. Methods: This study was conducted on 175 patients diagnosed with COVID-19 infection. Blood samples were collected from the patients and examined for the estimation of blood parameters, differential cell count, and presence of atypical lymphocytes. Results: The mean age of the patients was 53.73 years, and males constituted 52.6% of the patients. The majority had normal hemoglobin levels. WBC count was normal in 60.6% of the patients, while 74.3% had normal platelet count, and thrombocytopenia was detected in 23.4%. In addition, differential WBC count indicated that 56.6% of the patients had normal neutrophils, while lymphopenia was detected in 28 and 77.7% had a low eosinophil count. The peripheral blood smears showed atypical lymphocytes with deeply basophilic cytoplasm in 21.14% of the patients. Conclusions: Blood film examination may show multiple abnormal findings in patients with COVID-19 infection. Neutrophilia and lymphopenia with the presence of atypical lymphocytes are frequently observed as wel

Hematological parameters in adult patients with COVID-19; A case-control study

International Journal of Infection (Issue: 8) (Volume: 4)

Background: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic is a serious public health concern worldwide. The virus mainly causes respiratory symptoms, but its manifestations might be different. Assessments showed that COVID-19 can cause various alterations in the blood parameters. Objectives: This study aimed to detect the most common changes in the blood parameters in COVID-19 patients and compare them with healthy individuals. Methods: In this study, 350 individuals were grouped into two equal groups of COVID-19 patients and healthy controls. Results: The mean age of patients was 53.73 years, and males constituted 52.57% of them. Middle aged patients constituted about 55.43% of participants, elderly patients 26.29%, and young patients 18.29%. There was a significant correlation between COVID-19 and all the blood parameters, including Hb, MCV, WBC, neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, and platelets (P= 0.000). Conclusions: Infection with COVID-19 is associated with multisystem symptoms and signs, as well as numerous laboratory abnormalities. An increased focus should be on changes in the blood parameters as valuable markers in suggesting the infection when the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) is negative. These parameters can give clues about the severity of the infection and predict the admission to the intensive care unit (ICU).

Effects of thyroid dysfunction on hematological parameters: Case controlled study

Annals of Medicine and Surgery (Volume: 57)

Introduction: The thyroid gland has a very important role in hematopoiesis, blood disorders are frequently seen in patients with thyroid disorders. Thyroid hormones have direct effect on blood parameters by stimulating erythrocytes precursors and indirectly by enhancing erythropoietin production. Patients and methods: This is a case-control study which included 300 subjects who were grouped to 3 equal groups as a control, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism groups. Patients with inherited or acquired red cell abnormalities, those receiving treatment for thyroid disorder or anemia, patient with chronic diseases, aged <12 years, pregnant ladies and patients unwilling to participate in the study were excluded. Results: The mean age of patients is 40.72 years, and females constituted 60.7% of cases. The analyses showed a significant difference the RBC, HB, MCV, MCHC, RDW, and WBC (P values 0.000, 0.000, 0.001, 0.012.0.002, and 0.027) respectively, while platelets showed no significant correlation (P value 0.08). The univariate analyses showed that RBC, the HB, and the WBC were the most severely affected parameters (Sig. 0.000, 0.000, and 0.005) respectively. Conclusion: The study concluded that females are more affected by thyroid disorders than males and the peak age is at the forties, thyroid dysfunction affect all blood parameters except platelets.The follow up of patients with thyroid disorders should include the complete blood count and patients diagnosed with anemia should be evaluated for thyroid disorders before iron therapy. Cases of anemia that resist treatment should be investigated for the possibility of thyroid dysfunction.
