Our aim in this study was to investigate the effects of transfusion on pulmonary function tests (PFT) in patients with thalassemia. A total of 43 patients (34 major, 6 intermedia and 3 S/B thalassemics), 21 females and 22 males aged 6 to 29 (mean ± SD: 13.82 ± 4.96) years participated. PFT was performed using a spirometry (ST-250) programmed with European Community for Coal and a Steal (ECCS) equations. Transfusion did not effect the PFT parameters at the pre- and posttransfusion period and but the type of pulmonary function disorders partially changed after transfusion in our patients.

Keywords: Transfusion, Pulmonary function test, Thalassemia.
