Tuberculosis (TB) affects the production and life span of all hematologic cellular components ( Table 1 ). In addition, plasma coagulation factors may be affected. The pharmacological agents used for TB therapy may also cause hematologic changes ( Table 2 ). This chapter reviews and updates known hematologic effects of TB and its therapy.
