The investigation included standard blood grouping tube method. The commonest blood group observed was "B" (31%), the next commonest groups were "O"(27%) and "A" (27%) and "AB" (15%). The Rh-positive were 94% and Rh-negative were 6%. Various haematolgoical disorders are quite common. some of the se are congenital e.g. Thalassaemia, Haemophilia and some of them are acquired e.g. Aplastic Anaemia, Chronic renal Failure. These disorders develop regardless of the blood groups. The frequency of ABO and RhD blood groups are related to the blood groups of the specific geographical or ethnic population.
