The work purpose is to study blood indicators in dynamics among children with extremely low body weight in the Republic of Mordovia. 90 cards of outpatient observation (form 112/u) within one year of every child’s life were analyzed: 30 children born with extremely low body weight, 30 – with very low body weight, 30 – the full-term, healthy newborns. We studied anamnesis of the children, the analysis of blood indicators and influence of various factors. Hematologic parameters in each group were analyzed, correlation analysis of erythroid lineage indicators and anthropometric data of children were carried out.The levels of hemoglobin, erythrocytes, leucocytes and neutrophils at birth in small premature infants were lower than indicators of control group; stabilization of hemoglobin level took place only to six months of life, accompanied by simultaneous rising of erythrocytes level and the marked thrombocytosis, the reduced level of neutrophils persisted during the whole first year of life. Also average degree of correlation between indicators of body weight and hemoglobin level, and strong correlation dependence between a gain of body weight and indicators of erythrocytes in group of children with extremely low body/birth weight were detected
