Background: Tuberculosis is a major public health problem in India having variety of hematological manifestations. Aims and objectives: to investigate the changes of some hematological parameters in patients affected with pulmonary tuberculosis. Methods: All the smears were stained with Ziehl Neelsen stain by using standard protocol and blood were collected from patient into EDTA containers and tested on automated cell counter with complete profile. Result :Out of total 227 patients 179 (78.85%) were male and the larger prevalence among male patient was among age group 41-50 years (38.54%) and the larger prevalence among female patients was noted between the group 31-40 years (35.41%). The mean Hb level was 9.5g/dl, anaemia was found in 155(68.28%), leukocytosis in 65(28.63%), leucopenia in 5(2.20%), thrombocytosis in 40(17.62%), thrombocytopenia in 12(5.28%), ESR was found to be raised in 223(98.23%). Conclusion: patients infected with TB should be monitored haematologically in this study we found significant association of microscopic tuberculosis positive tuberculosis cases with raised ESR and anaemic patients.
