Beside manual estimation of platelet count, blood film evaluation provides additional assessment of platelet size, shape, granulation, and analysis of phenomena such as aggregation or platelet satellitism. Manual platelet estimation using various methods in severe thrombocytopenia cases is more accurate compared to automated methods.
We excluded from the study, by examination for the blood smears, the pseudo-thrombopenic samples caused by platelet clumps, macrothrombocytes and platelet satellitism. Platelet count in each sample was estimated according to Brahimi's and Anitha's methods by three different technicians in a blinded manner then compared to the automated count.
