Objective To study the changes in platelet indexes of children with Kawsaki disease, including PLT, MPV and PDW.Methods Venous blood was taken out in disease group (n=30) and control group (n=30). Platelet indexes including PLT, MPV and PDW were measured by automatic blood-analyzing apparatus.Results The averages of PLT in disease group was significantly higher than in control group ( 421.4 ± 152.7 vs 239.0 ± 119.3 , respectively, P 0.01 ); MPV and PDW in disease group were greater than in control group ( 9.15 ± 1.99 and 15.82 ± 2.57 vs 8.17 ± 0.63 and 11.48 ± 1.05 , P 0.05 or P 0.01 ).Conclusion Platelet indexes were helpful for the diagnosis of hypercoagulability, the evaluation of curative effectiveness of anticoagulants and the judgment of prognosis.
