Dynamic profiles of laboratory parameters in 4 SFTS pediatric patients in comparison with 180 adult patients. The laboratory parameters include temperature (A), platelet counts (B), white blood cell counts (C), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (D), alanine transaminase (ALT) (E), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) (F), creatine kinase (CK) (G) and SFTSV viral loads (H). Dynamic profiles were delineated using mean (standard deviations) in A, B, C and H and median (P25-P75) in D, E, F and G. The lowest platelet counts (x109/L) in Figure 1
B were 90,87, 62 and 50, respectively. The lowest WBC counts (x109/L) in Figure 1
C were 2.2, 1.8, 1.6 and 1.7, respectively. The highest values of AST (U/L) in Figure 1
D were 14, 521, 54 and 188, respectively. The highest levels of ALT (U/L) in Figure 1
E were 39, 236, 132 and 158, respectively. The normal ranges of the laboratory parameters were delineated for children and adults separately. Only one range was marked if the normal ranges were the same for children and adults.
