Abstract

The haematological profile in 20 culture proven patients with typhoid fever of varying age and of both sexes was studied. Significant changes observed were anaemia, leucopenia, eosinopenia, thrombocytopenia and sub-clinical disseminated intravascular coagulation. The bone marrow of typhoid patients showed myeloid maturation arrest, decrease in the number of erythroblasts and megakaryocytes with increased phagocytic activity of histiocytes.
