Complete blood counts (total and differential) and estimation of hematological indices, including total haemoglobin (Hb), packed cell volume (PCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) were performed using an automated cell counter (Beckman Counter, France).

Erythrocytic indices such as red blood count (RBC), hemoglobin, Hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC), and red cell volume distribution width (RDW) did not change significantly.
Red cell indices, white blood cell counts, hematocrit, hemoglobin concentration and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration significantly decreased among patients who were exposed to petroleum fumes for at least 2 years in duration, and was significantly correlated with prolonged exposure to toxic fumes [6].
