Results: Blood group ‘B’ had the highest incidence and 93.33% of the blood groups tested were Rh positive. ‘A’ blood group with Rh positivity was more commonly associated with TTI.

Conclusion : The most common blood group tested in our blood bank was ‘B positive’, whereas TTI was common in the ‘A positive’ blood donors.
