Abstract

Background: Acute leukemia is a malignant disease involving hematopoietic tissue, characterized by abnormal blood cells in bone marrow or called blast cells. The most common complications of acute leukemia is bleeding. A high percentage of blasts has been reported to increase the risk of bleeding in acute leukemia. Preliminary study was needed to investigate relationship between blast cells count and bleeding incidence in acute leukemia.

Methods: Crosssectional study with observasional analytic in 18 adult subjects was conducted from November 2019 to March 2020 in Ulin Hospital Banjarmasin South Kalimantan. The data were taken from medical records of acute leukemia patients who met inclusion and exclusion criterias. Data analysis was using Fisher’s exact test.

Results: There were 7 men and 11 women in this study. Blast cells count in peripheral with cut off     <50% was 9 (50%) and ≥50% was 9 (50%). It was same for blast cells count in bone marrow. Both of women and men mostly have bleeding in acute leukemia, and bleeding incidence in women is higher than men. Bleeding condition was happened both in peripheral and bone marrow blast cells count with cut of <50% and ≥50%. Significancy of relationship between blast cells count and bleeding incidence was 0.637.

Conclusion: There is no significant between blast cells count and the bleeding incidence in acute leukemia. Another parameters that could be influenced bleeding inceidence need to be investigate in acute leukemia.
