ABSTRACT
Objectives: To carry out comparative study of some haematological parameters in ABO compatible and incompatible maternal foetal gestation. Methodology: A total of 260 subjects comprising of 130 postpartum women within the age range of 22-35 years, with good obstetrics history and normal delivery with their 130 neonate babies were included is the study. ABO blood group of mothers with their babies, were carried out to classify compatible and non compatible gestation. Haematological parameters viz ; Packed cell volume(PCV), White blood cell count(WBC), Platelet count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate(ESR), and reticulocyte count were carried out on blood samples from the mother and baby. Result: Eighty pairs were found to be ABO compatible, while 50 were incompatible. Student t- test was used to test the means for significance at p< 0.05. There was significant increase in the PCV, non significance in WBC count, platelet count ESR and no significant increase in reticulocyte count of incompatible compared with compatible while the babies showed no significant increase in PCV, WBC, Platelet count, ESR, as well as no significant reduction in reticulocyte count of incompatible compared with compatible. Conclusion: Considerable differences do exist in the haematological parameters of compatible when compared with incompatible maternal - foetal gestations. Evaluation of biochemical compositon of compatible and incompatible placenta is therefore recommended for elucidation.

However, the mechanism linking the two remains unclear. There is now cumulative evidence that platelets may be involved. Platelets are...
