Abstract

Abstract Introduction: Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) is known as the Captain's death Platelets are inflammatory cells with an important antimicrobial role in host defense. Our hypothesis is that abnormal platelet count can be an indicator of the CAP intensity. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between blood platelets and complications in hospitalized CAP patients of Mashhad Islamic Azad University teaching hospitals. Methods: A total of 60 CAP patients were selected for this study Complete Blood Count was routinely performed for all patients .Patients with platelet count less than 100000/microliter considered thrombocytopenic,count more than 400000 /micro liter considered thrombocytosis. The relationship between CAP of complications, included pleural effusion, respiratory insufficiency, septic shock, empyema, and platelet count were evaluated. Results: Mean age of patients was 62.6± 10.4 years, 46 patients hade normal platelets, 11 patients hade thrombocytosis and 3 patients hade thrombocytopenia. Age, sex and leukocyte count showed no meaningful difference between three groups. Respiratory insufficiency was not different between three groups, but pleural effusion and empyema were more prevalent in thrombocytosis group, and septic shock was more prevalent in thrombocytopenic group. Conclusion:In CAP platelet count should be considered, because of the impressive clinical results, and further studies may be necessary to achieve more accurate results.
