NHL, AHA, Coomb's Test


The study was conducted to determine the frequency of autoimmune haemolytic anaemia in non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. A cross sectional study on 100 patients of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma was conducted in Pathology department, KEMU, Lahore.  The mean age among the patients was 50.14 ±17.053 years. The mean haemoglobin was 10.73g/dl ± 2.74 . Out of 100, 88 patients had Coomb’s Test negative and 12 patients had a positive result. Those having a positive coomb’s test showed a higher retic count i.e., 5.05 ± 2.37. The average bilirubin levels in all NHL patients were 0.901 0.995 mg/dL, with a substantially higher mean of 2.15 1.19 mg/dL among patients who tested positive for Coomb's. The LDH levels of those immensely high 764.5 ± 441.Post stratification chi square testing showed no significant relationship was found between autoimmune hemolytic anemia among NHL patients. Age and gender have no significant effect. However, disease stage can be a risk factor. Therefore, it is emphasized that all patients of NHL, regardless of age and gender, must be thoroughly investigated.
