It Is An Axiomatic Truth That The Children Of Today Are Citizens Of Tomorrow And Upon Them Depend The Weal And Welfare Of The Community. In A Country Like India, Children Fall An Easy Prey To Anemia As Majority Of Them Remain Ill-Fed, Ill-Clothed And Undernourished Due To Poverty And Ignorance. If Not Detected At The Earliest Point Of Time, This Disease Which Is Draconian Will Spread It’s Tentacles So Widely As To Impair Or Endanger The Very Physical Condition Of The Children. Anemia Is Not A Disease But Only A Manifestation Of The Underlying Disease. Root Cause Of Anemia May Be A Trivial Problem Like Iron Deficiency Anemia, And Vit B12 Or Folic Acid Deficiency Or It May Be The First Indication Of An Ominous Disorder Like Leukemia Or Aplastic Anemia. Management Of Pediatric Patients Depends Not Only On The Hematologist But Also On The Automated Cell Counters Which Give A Precise Measurement Of Hematological Parameters. In This Study I Have Evaluated The Clinical And Hematological Profile Of Pediatric Patients Coming To Pediatric Dept, Govt Rajaji Hospital Who Are Found To Be Anemic. The Morphological Findings Are Correlated With Results Of The Automated Cell Counters. Peripheral Smear Study, Automated Hemogram And Reticulocyte Count Done In All Children. Serum Iron Studies, Bone Marrow Examination Direct Coomb’s Test, Hb Electrophoresis Done In Children With Resistant Anemia.
