Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Total lymphocyte count and lymphocyte percentage were calculated in a group of 26 patients of Bronchogenic carcinoma and compared with the values in 22 cases of pulmonary tuberculosis. Patients of Bronchogenic carcinoma had a significant lymphocytopenia as compared to patients of tuberculosis. It is inferred that this peripheral lymphocytopenia can be used as a possible diagnostic pointer in patients of Bronchogenic carcinoma.
