Blood group is a classification of blood cells based on the presence or absence of inherited antigenic substances on the surface of red blood cells (RBCs). Blood group is also called as blood type. Genetic makeover is bought by respective parents determining which antigen is present on the red blood cells. This helps to find out the father of a child.

Haemostasis is a process of formation of clot bleeding to stop bleeding that is the first stage of wound healing. Hemostasis occurs when blood cells is present outside of the body or blood vessels. Hemostasis has three major steps: 1) vasoconstriction, 2) temporary blockage of a break by a platelet plug, and 3) blood coagulation, or formation of a fibrin clot.
Sickle cell disease is caused by a genetic abnormality in the gene for hemoglobin, which results in the production of sickle hemoglobin. When oxygen is released from sickle hemoglobin, it sticks together and forms long rods, which damage and change the shape of the red blood cell. The sickle red blood cells cause the symptoms of sickle cell disease.The sickle-shaped red blood cells break apart easily, causing anemia.

Lymphocytes are an important part of the immune system. A count significantly higher than 3,000 lymphocytes in a microliter is generally considered to be lymphocytosis in adults. In children, the threshold for lymphocytosis varies with age, but may be as high as 7,000 to 9,000 lymphocytes per microliter. Lymphocytosis or a high lymphocyte count, is an increase in white blood cells called lymphocytes.

Antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) is a disorder that manifests clinically as recurrent venous or arterial thrombosis and/or fetal loss. Characteristic laboratory abnormalities in APS include persistently elevated levels of antibodies directed against membrane anionic phospholipids (ie, anticardiolipin [aCL] antibody, antiphosphatidylserine) or their associated plasma proteins, predominantly beta-2 glycoprotein I (apolipoprotein H); or evidence of a circulating anticoagulant.
Leukopenia is a reduction in the circulating WBC count to < 4000/μL. It is usually characterized by a reduced number of circulating neutrophils, although a reduced number of lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils, or basophils may also contribute which leads to great decrease in immune function.
Leukopenia may be caused by various diseases and drugs. Antidepressant and smoking addiction treatment medication called Bupropion and antibiotic Minocycline and penicillin may also cause leukopenia. Treatment of leukopenia depends on the cause of the condition. Some medical treatments can temporarily deplete the body of white blood cells. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, antibiotics or diuretics can kill off white blood cells as the medications target fast growing tissues throughout the body.
Blood cancers occur due to abnormal production and function of your blood cells. Most of these cancers in bone marrow where blood cell is produced. Stem cells in bone marrow mature and develop into three types of blood cells: red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. In most blood cancers, the normal blood cell development process is interrupted by uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. These abnormal blood cells, or cancerous cells, prevent blood cell from performing many of its functions, like fighting off infections or preventing serious bleeding.

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia is a group of disorders characterized by a malfunction of the immune system that produces autoantibodies, which attack red blood cells as if they were substances foreign to the body. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia is an uncommon group of disorders that can occur at any age. These disorders affect women more often than men. Autoimmune hemolytic anemia can also be caused by or occur with another disorder, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), and rarely it follows the use of certain drugs, such as penicillin.
Anemia develops when deficiency of red cells or haemoglobin in the blood cell occurs. Hemoglobin is a main part of red blood cells and binds oxygen. Certain forms of anemia are hereditary and infants may be affected from the time of birth. Women in the childbearing years are particularly susceptible to iron-deficiency anemia because of the blood cell loss from menstruation and the increased supply demands during pregnancy. There are many types of anemia. All are very different in their causes and treatments.
Increase in the number of eosinophils in the blood cell is called Eosinophilia and occurs in response to some allergens, drugs, and parasites, and in some types of leukaemia. Peripheral blood cell eosinophil count is >500/ μl. Eosinophilia can be idiopathic, the disease may be controlled with corticosteroids.
Lymphocytosis is an increase in the number or proportion of lymphocytes in the blood cells i.e. Lymphocyte count is more than 5000/ml. Causes of Lymphocytosis include viral infection, Lymphoproliferative disorder, Toxoplasmosis, etc. Lymphocytosisis commonly short lived.
Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia is found in children as an aggressive pediatric myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)/myeloproliferative disorder (MPD) symptomized by malignant transformation in the hematopoietic stem cell compartment with proliferation of differentiated progeny . JMML constitutes approximately 30% of childhood cases of myelodysplastic syndrome and 2% of leukemia. JMML and CMML have a high frequency of mutations affecting the RAS signaling pathway and show hypersensitivity to stimulation with GM-CSF, which causes STAT5 hyperphosphorylation.
Neutropenia is a decrease in circulating neutrophils in the nonmarginal pool, which constitutes 4-5% of total body neutrophil stores. Most of the neutrophils are contained in the bone marrow, either as mitotically active (one third) or postmitotic mature cells (two thirds). Tuberculosisis one type of infection that may cause neutropenia.
Hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) is blood disorder in a fetus or newborn infant and major cause is fetal loss and death among newborn babies. Hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) is also called as erythroblastosis fetalis. More occurs during a mother's second or subsequent pregnancy.
Lymphoma is a form of cancer that affects the immune system specifically effects lymphocytes which are a type of white blood cell. There are two broad types of lymphoma and many subtypes. The two types of lymphoma are described as: Hodgkin's or non-Hodgkin's.
Hemolytic anemia occurs when the bone marrow is unable to replace the red blood cells that are being destroyed. Hemolytic anemia is a type of anemia. Hemolytic anemia is caused by high rates of red blood cell destruction i.e. erythrocytic loss which results in improper bone marrow activity. Initial stages of haemolysis are asymptomatic but in final stage s of haemolysis causes angina and cardio pulmonary diseases sometimes leads to death.
Abnormality in Plasma cell results in plasma cell disorders. Plasma cell disorders are uncommon. Single plasma cell multiplies excessively which results in increasing number of abnormal plasma cells results damages of various tissues and organs.
