Abstract:
Introduction: One important way for transmission of viral hepatitis is blood and blood products. Thalassemic children are high-risk group for hepatitis, because of frequent blood transfusion. The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence of HBV and HCV in these children. Method: 5 ml of blood sample collected from all thalassemic children (n=122) who were referred to Cooly's ward in B. Hospital in Yasouj to receive blood transfusion. For each blood sample HBSAg, Anti-HBC, AntiHCV and RIBA test were done. Results: 49.2% of patients were male and 50.8% female, 55.7% of patients were less than 10 years old and 44.3% more than 10 years old. HBSAg in 1.6% of patients were positive and Anti-HBC in 9.8% were positive. Anti-HCV and RIBA test in 18% of patients were positive. Conclusion: Based on these results we conclude that screen test on blood for viral infectious agents will reduce the transmission of them and as HBV screening tests is longer than HCV screening tests, so the prevalence of HCV is more than HBV in these children. HBV and HCV testing is better to be a routine tests in thalassemic patients in treatment program this area.
