Abstract: There are two types of HIV that cause AIDS: HIV-1 and HIV-2. Very little is known about HIV-2. Studies have shown striking similarities but also important differences between HIV-1 and HIV-2. They have the same modes of transmission and are associated with the same opportunistic infections, but HIV-2 appears to progress at a slower rate. Majority of HIV-2 cases are found in western Africa. Various sub types of HIV-1 have been found in specific geographic areas and in specific high risk groups. Evaluation of haematological profile in HIV patients was done with Hb%, RBC, TC, DC, Platelet count, ESR, Bone marrow if needed and biochemical tests.
These haematological abnormalities were correlated with various stages of HIV (WHO stages).
The results were analyzed by calculating percentage, mean, standard deviation, chi-square test and fisher exact. In our study, among the patients with CD4 count <200 cells/microlitre; 65% had anemia, 55% had raised ESR, 33% had leukopenia, 30% had neutropenia, 28% had lymphocytopenia, 45% had mono cytopenia and 50% had thrombocytopenia. Among the patients with CD4 count ≥200 cells/microlitre; 66% had anemia, 66% had raised ESR, 8% had leukopenia, 8% had neutropenia, 8% had lymphocytopenia, 50% had mono cytopenia and 41% had thrombocytopenia.
