Hematologic changes in children small for gestational age



Hematologic changes in children small for gestational age



Srpski Arhiv Za Celokupno Lekarstvo 117(5-6): 285-290



Haematologic and coagulation changes were examined in 60 children whose gestation age was between the 31st and the 39th week and body weight from 950-2650 grams. There were 34 children smaller than they should be for their gestation development, and 26 children whose development correlated with the gestation period. In small children haematologic changes were dominated by polycythaemia with hyperviscosity, thrombocytopenia, reticulosis and leucopenia. The most significant coagulation changes were expressed by prolonged thrombin-time, prothrombin-time and partially thromboplastin-time, decreased fibrinogen with fibrin degradating products, decreased vitamin K factors dependent on coagulation and antithrombin III. In children with normal gestation maturity haematologic and coagulation changes were significantly lower.
