Abstract: 

This investigation was carried out to assess the effect of phototherapy on platelets count. The study was conducted on 102 neonates, with age of 2 to 18 days (average of 6 days) who admitted to Bandar Abbass pediatric hospital, for phototherapy due to hyperbilirubinemia. Phototherapy was done by 4-8 lamps (white-blue) with distance of 35 cm for an average of 2 to 5 days.

The change in the number of platelets was noted parallel to age, sex, weight, bilirubin level and number of days of hospitalization.

Results showed statistically significant relation between the days of therapy and platelet count (p< 0.05), but, no significant relation was observed between platelet count and other factors (P > 0.05).

In 52 neonates (50.98%) the highest platelet decrease was on the second day compared to first day.

Since neonates during the phototherapy showed no symptoms and signs and minimum platelet count was 60,000 per cubic millimeter, it can be concluded that in neonates who go through phototherapy there is no need for daily platelet count.
