WBC going Down. And also platelet. Need your suggestions ...



H/ o fever? Gradual decrease of TLC with relative lymphocytisis. Rule in / out most common endemic disease in India - Typhoid fever, by doing Blood / Stool / Typhidot IgG and IgM - as you feel appropriate. Then consider other D / D.

Platelet not significant decrease. First give IV fluids crystloids maintain vitals, pcm500mg sos.keep close observation.

It might be gradually decreasing or not significant at all...if there is a rapid reduction in plt or wbc with high grade fever headache arthralgia dengue serology can be done... If the fever pattern is High grade associated with chills and early morning episodes associated with GI symptoms widely can be done to rule out salmonella In both cases hydration is important and IV fluids has to be started along with symptomatic treatment ...which gives relief to the patient ...and the rest of the treatment can be decided based on repors
