Abstract


Hemoglobin, total leukocyte count, differential leukocyte count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, random blood sugar, creatinine and blood urea levels were measured in a total of 1123  participants attended at North lakhimpur Civil hospital during the year 2013. The prevalence of anemia was observed in 45.33% (509/1123) cases. Among the study participants, 5.08% (57/1123) cases were typhoid widal test positive. The level of low monocyte count observed in all the typhoid positive cases. Beside this an increase level of ESR value, random blood sugar, creatinine and blood urea were examined in a considerable number of cases. Male tend to have higher erythrocyte sedimentation rate values than the females. Only a single Plasmodium falciparum positive case was detected among the study samples. The study concludes that hematological and biochemical estimation is probably useful in early detection of case infection.
