Rehab Omer Adam Mohammed Gibla, Wala Hassan Alshekh, Osman Yousef Alamin

The objective of this study was to investigate the changes in white blood cells and differential counts in pregnant women at kosti city (Sudan). Blood specimens were collected from 100 pregnant women and 100 non pregnant women as control. The Samples were analyzed immediately by using hemacytometer and thin blood film technique. The obtained results showed significant increase in white blood cells count in pregnant group (mean 7.3103l) compared with (5.7103l mean) in the non-pregnant group. In the pregnant group the white blood cells count was markedly increased at the third trimester (9.1103l) compared to (5.4103l) in the first trimester and (7.3103l) in the second. In the differential count, neutrophils were significantly increased (63%). The esinophils, monocytes and basophils were not affected, whereas the lymphocytes were slightly reduced (27%). In the non-pregnant group (control), the white blood cells count was found to be (5.7103l), whereas the differential counts showed, neutrophils (45%), esinophils, (2%), monocytes (11%), basophils (0%), and lymphocytes (40%).
