Abstract


Background:To study the hematological changes in physiological neonatal jaundice in
Saveetha medical college and hospital,Chennai.
Methods:Selection of cases were done from routine cases reporting to neonatal ward and department of paediatrics, from Saveetha medical

count, absolute neutrophil count is done.
Results:Study includes 50 cases in last six months of July in 2018. From the data analysis there is increased haemoglobin in 21 patients, decreased
