Peripheral blood findings (Hematocrit, white blood cell count, platelet count and formula) were evaluated in 116 patients with thyrotoxicosis and compared with controls. Mean hematocrit (39%) was within normal limits although it was lower than controls. White blood cell count (6109/cumm) was also within normal limits. Percentage and number of neutrophils in patients (50.4%-3113/cumm) were lower than controls (69.6%-4013/cumm). However percentage and number of lymphocytes in patients (43.9%-2669/cumm) were higher than controls (27%-1560). 73% of the patients had atypical mononuclear cells in their peripheral blood smears. These parameters were not different between diffuse and nodular thyrotoxicosis. Platelet count below 150000/cumm was found in only 3 cases.
