Abstract

Background:Seventy eight patients with beta - thalassemia major were Collected randomly from the thalassemia center in Ibn-Al-Baldy Hospital (all of them were transfusion dependent), together with fifty six age and sex matched healthy children were collected as a control.
Aim of the study: To determine the incidence of thromboembolism among them and to evaluate the precipitating factors.
Patients and Methods: History was taken and physical examination was done . EDTA Anticoagulated blood samples were taken prior to the next transfusion , platelet parameters were estimated for both groups using the MS – 9 coulter counter .
Results: Thromboembolic events was detected in five patients (6.41%).The main site was the central nervous system in 4 of them ( 5.2%) followed by the lung ,1 case ( 1.2%). Associated predisposing factors were found in 3 of them (60%).The patients had a statistically significant higher platelet counts, platelet crit, mean platelet volume and platelet distribution width than the control group. The splenectomized had higher platelet counts ,platelet crit than the non splenectomized with nearly equal mean platelet volume and platelet distribution width , a results that is in favour of thrombosis.
Conclusions:This results suggest that beta- thalassemia patients had a hypercoagulable state which makes them susceptible to thrombosis and pulmonary embolism even in the young age group and even before splenectomy is performed.

Abstract

Hemostatic abnormalities include both bleeding and thrombosis disorders. Adherence to mostcommon guidelines for the diagnosis of thrombophilia is recommended especially in some developingcountries. High level of orientation to thrombophilic disorders needs wide spectrum of knowledgeabout the causes, primary or secondary, investigations to most common risk factors, selectingcandidates to investigations, in addition to covering the possibility of multifactorial background ofdisease. Limited data are available that focus on the thrombophilic disorders with imperfect diagnosticcooperation between clinical and laboratory aspects to reach the full picture of these hemostaticabnormalities. In this short review of literature, we considered the most important publications thatassessed the inherited thrombophilia at levels of presentation, diagnosis, and management withfocus on the practical side. The aim of this review is to summarize the most important aspects ofthe thrombophilia presentation, inherited causes, indications for testing, and investigations requiredfor thrombophilic patients
