      Changes in haematological indices like haemoglobin, iron, red blood corpuscles and white blood corpuscles were studied inCalotes versicolor during single and multiple type of helminth infection and single and multiple organ infection. The haemoglobin content, iron content and total count of RBCs decreased during helminth infection, whereas the total count of WBCs increased.
