Abstract
Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate systemic markers related to anemia in peripheral blood of patients with chronic generalized severe periodontitis and compare them with healthy controls.
Materials and Methods: A total of 60 systemically healthy males, aged 18 to 50 years were selected from the out patients department of periodontology, Meenakshi Ammal Dental College and Hospital. They were divided into two groups; Controls (group A) 30 male volunteers with healthy gingiva and Test Group (group B) 30 male patients with chronic generalized severe periodontitis. Periodontal clinical parameters and hematological parameters were recorded in both the groups.
Results: Blood parameters of patients with chronic generalized severe periodontitis especially Red Blood Cell (RBC) count, Haemoglobin (Hb) and Packed Cell Volume (PCV) values were reduced in group B indicating that chronic generalized severe periodontitis has a definite systemic effect.
Conclusion: RBC count, Haemoglobin (Hb) and PCV values of chronic generalized severe periodontitis patients were low compared to healthy individuals.

Key words: Anemia of chronic disease, Chronic generalized severe periodontitis, RBC Count, Packed cell volume, Haemogloblin
