Hematological observation of atomic bomb survivors living in Tokyo about ten years after atomic bomb explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki



Hematological observation of atomic bomb survivors living in Tokyo about ten years after atomic bomb explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki



Keio Jour Med 6(3): 99-112



Bone marrow studies were made on 35 who had survived 10 years after atomic bomb explosions. They had had few acute symptoms. Macrocytic hyperchromic anemia was a frequent late finding. The white blood count was usually within normal range with decrease in granulocytes and an increase in lymphocytes and eosino-philes. Serum iron and copper showed a wide unstable range. Bone marrow studies showed one group with decrease in nucleated cells (1B with less than 50,000 count) granulocytes and erythroblasts and a relative increase in lymphocytes while no anemia showed in peripheral blood. The other group showed an increase in granulocytes. While most survivors were working, a majority complained of general malaise. Two had myelocytic leukemia.
