Abstract

Automated systems are currently in widespread use for the assessment of patients' complete blood counts. The evaluation of the peripheral blood smear, however, still constitutes a pivotal tool in the evaluation of patients with hematologic disorders. This article focuses on disorders affecting the number or morphology of platelets as assessed by evaluation of a peripheral blood smear and also outlines some of their important clinical findings.
