Common Blood Disorders & how to recognise them in primary care


General Practitioners are commonly faced with abnormalities of the full blood count. This can vary from thrombocytopenia, to lymphocytosis to eosinophilia, amongst others. We aim to provide practical guidance for managing these problems in primary care, with reference to various professional guidelines where appropriate. The approach to other disorders such as lymphadenopathy, paraproteins, haemochromatosis, as well as antibodies in pregnancy, is also discussed. The approach to anaemia has been covered in a separate linked article.
