This chapter describes the common haematological abnormalities seen in rheumatic conditions with special reference to laboratory findings and diagnostic traps. The chapter is organized into sections dealing with red cell abnormalities (and the distinction between anaemia of chronic disease and iron deficiency); white cell abnormalities (neutrophilia and neutropenia); platelets (thrombocytosis, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura); and finally coagulation abnormalities (lupus anticoagulant).
