Abstract: Introduction: Rheumatic heart disease (RHD), a chronic acquired disorder, is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in developing and impoverished countries, Red blood cell distribution width, platelet distribution width, mean platelet volume, and C - reactive protein levels were all significantly higher in patients with rheumatic heart disease compared to healthy controls (p 0.01). Several studies have looked at the correlations between neutrophil, lymphocyte, and platelet count, NLR (relation between neutrophil, lymphocyte), and mean platelet volume values with the severity of cardiovascular disease. Acute rheumatic fever is commonly associated with anemia. Methodology: The subjects of this convenience study are the 115 patients with rheumatic heart disease who visited the cardiology referral clinic at Digna Price Hospital in Port Sudan, Sudan, between 2018 and 2020,. After explaining the study to each participant, their signed informed consent was obtained, 4.5 mL of blood from each participant's cubital vein. A complete blood count was performed using a hematological analyzer (Sysmex X P 300). Results: the mean of Hemoglobin (Hb), total white blood counts (TWBCs) and platelets were 11.8 g/ dl (? std 1.64), 6.9 (? std 10.5), 294.9 ((? std 85.6) respectively.
