The binary logistic regression model was applied in order to identify multiple independent risk factors for the dependent variables d-cytopenia, c-cytopenia, anemia at the time of diagnosis, leukopenia, lymphopenia, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia.
The abnormal laboratory findings that we have reported are consistent with the findings from previous studies among hospitalized patients: lymphopenia ranged between 20% and 68% anemia, and thrombocytopenia was noted in 37% and 14% of patients, respectively.
Haemotological parameters in the the study were defined as Anemia; defined as Hb <12 g/dl in males and <11 g/dl in females, Lymphopenia was defined as absolute lymphocyte count <1.
To assess the issue without an effect on results due to lymphopenia (which is commonly observed in SLE patients), only SLE patients with normal lymphocyte levels (>1.
Of the 32 patients, 22 suffered from anemia, three from thrombocytopenia and three, leukopenia out of which, three had absolute lymphopenia, and one had both absolute lymphopenia and neutropenia.
