Pattern of Haematological Disorders on Bone Marrow Aspiration in Atertiary Care Centre in North India
Abstract: Background: Bone marrow aspiration is an important technique for diagnosing both neoplastic and non-neoplastic haematological diseases. The present study was done in the post graduate department of pathology to study the spectrum of haematological and non haematological disorders on bone marrow aspiration and its role in the identification of these disorders. Material and Methods: This was a one year study conducted in the department of pathology Govt Medical College Jammu from January 2018 to December 2018. Total of 350 cases were subjected to bone marrow aspiration during this period. Results: A total of 350 cases were included in the study. The age range of patients was 2 to 75 years and male to female ratio was 1.16: 1. Anemias were the most common haematological disorders in our study accounting for 40 % of cases followed by acute leukemias accounting for 27.14 % of cases. Among anemias, megaloblastic anemias were the most common followed by dual deficiency anemia. Among leukemias, acute myeloid leukemia was the most common. Conclusions: Bone marrow aspiration cytology is a mildly invasive technique which can diagnose many neoplastic and non-neoplastic haematological disorders. It is very useful in making a correct diagnosis and determining the cause of disease.
