Abstract

This study was done to compare the biochemical and pathological markers in cord blood in neonates with sepsis and neonates without sepsis. The study group consisted of 70 cases. Out of 70 cases, 27 had sepsis and 43 were neonates without sepsis. The cord blood were analyzed for CRP levels, RBC count, nucleated RBCs, Total leucocyte count, Polymorphonuclearleucocytes (PNL), platelet count and WBC toxication and WBC vacuolatio. Elevated CRP, low RBC count, increased nucleated RBC, low total count, increased WBC toxication, increased WBC vacuolation, low PNL, low platelet count were observed in Neonates with sepsis when compared to neonates without sepsis.
