Abstract
Aims: Blood transfusion is an important mode of transmission of infections to recipients. The aim of the study was to analyse the seroprevalence of HIV, HBsAg, HCV and syphilitic infections in the pretransfusion blood.
Methods: A total of 19,135 blood units were tested for HIV, HBsAg, HCV and syphilis.
Results: The seroprevalence of HIV, HBsAg, HCV and syphilis was 0.9%, 3.2%, 0.35%, 0.04% respectively in total donors.
Conclusions: The seroprevalence of HBsAg was more compared to HIV, HCV and syphilis.

Key Words: Transfusion transmissable, Seroprevalence, Pretransfusion
