Other diseases and conditions associated with CBC abnormalities

Abnormal amounts of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets can lead to several symptoms and health problems. These abnormalities can also be caused by an underlying disease. Sepsis, pancytopenia, and hpertriglycerdemia are a few examples of such diseases and conditions.

Hypertriglyceridemia

Hypertriglyceridemia (HTG) is a common clinical diagnosis, sometimes defined when plasma triglyceride (TG) concentration rises above a threshold value, such as the 90th or 95th percentile for age and sex. HTG frequently co-exists with secondary conditions, including poor diet, alcohol use, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes (1).

Sepsis

Sepsis is the body’s extreme response to an infection, which is a life-threatening medical emergency. The human body normally releases chemicals into the bloodstream to fight an infection. Sepsis occurs when the body's response to these chemicals is out of balance, triggering changes that can damage multiple organ systems (2).

Pancytopenia

Pancytopenia is a relatively common manifestation of a range of serious hematological diseases, including leukemia, bone marrow aplasia, myelodysplasia and megaloblastic anemia, where RBC, WBC and platelet numbers are characteristically reduced (Gayathri).

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever is caused by the dengue virus, which belongs to the Flavivirus family. Humans are infected by the bite of the infective Aedes aegypti mosquito (Gubler). According to the World Health Organization, DHF is defined by fever, hemorrhagic manifestations (such as petechiae/purpura, epistaxis, menorrhagia and gastrointestinal bleeding), thrombocytopenia and evidence of increased vascular permeability (Gubler, CDC).
