Description The aim of this retrospective observational study was to observe the pattern and frequency of haematological disorders among the patients attending in the specialized Haematology outpatient Department (HOPD) in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University. Consecutive 201 patients over the period of one year were enrolled. Their age ranged from 01 to 72 years with a mean age of 36.76 years. Most of the patients (34.3%) were in between the ages of 31 to 45 years followed by 16 to 30 years (27.9%). Male to female ratio was 0.65. Iron deficiency anaemia is the most common (24.9%) followed by chronic myeloid leukaemia (11.9%), Hb E beta thalassaemia (9.5%), idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (9.5%), beta thalassaemia trait (7.0%), Hb E trait (5.5 %), aplastic anaemia (5.0%), multiple myeloma (3.5%), acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (3.0%). Acute myeloid leukaemia, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, anaemia of chronic disease, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, polycythaemia, beta thalassemia major and alpha thalassemia was 2.5%, 2.5%, 2.0%, 1.5%, 1.5%, 1.5%, 1.0% and 1.0%, respectively.
