This paper represents a novel use of artificial neural networks in medical science. The proposed technique involves training a Multi Layer Perceptron (MLP) (a kind of artificial neural network) with a BP learning algorithm to recognize a pattern for the diagnosing and prediction of five blood disorders, through the results of blood tests from H1 machine. The blood test parameters and diagnosis of physician about the diseases of 450 patients from Taleghani Hospital in Kermanshah, Iran, are used
