Abstract

Introduction: The aim of our study is to evaluate thrombocytosis at the time of the diagnosis in the patients with pneumonia, bronchiolitis and asthma, and its importance in terms of the diagnosis.
Materials and Methods: We evaluated 583 patients diagnosed as asthma (n=36), bronchiolitis (n=387) and pneumonia (n=160) in pediatry clinic of GATA Haydarpasa Training Hospital and Zeynep Kamil Research Hospital between January 1, 2007 and January 1, 2010; and the ratio of patients with thrombocytosis at the time of diagnosis retrospectively.
Results: We found that the mean thrombocyte counts in patients who had been diagnosed as pneumonia and as bronchiolitis were found significantly higher than control group (p<0.05). But, there wasn’t a significant difference between the patients with asthma and control group (p=0.77). Otherwise, the number of patiens who have thrombocytosis with pneumonia and bronchiolitis were significantly higher than control group (p<0.005). But there wasn’t a significant difference in chronic asthma group (p=0.81).
Conclusion: Our study supports that, the thrombocyte counts are also another parameters that can help while making the diagnosis of the infectious pulmonary pathologies.
