Please interpret pericardium tissue mononuclear infiltrates with rare polymorphnuclear leukocytes & eosinophiles. Hemosiderin-laden macrophages.
Not tumor: This is the site of an old bleed and probably infection or physical injury. The key is that there's not tumor found. Any interpretation beyond this without a history would be meaningless. ...Read more
Depends: Atypical cells, usually referring to lymphocytes (white blood cells), can be reported on a complete blood count (CBC) test. These can be due to a recent viral infection, or these could be leukemia cells. The clinical picture and the results of the rest of the CBC will help determine if more specialized tests are required to figure out what these atypical cells truly represent. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Abnormal cells: Squamous cells line the junction on the cervix between the vaginal cells and the endometrial canal cells; pap smear screen for abnormal appearances in these cells as they indicate precursors to cervical cancer. Atypical means abnormal, so atypical squamous cells mean that the cells on the cervix are abnormal, but mildly abnormal, and not abnormal enough to classify as dysplasia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My smear test say atypical squamous cells and I was told to come back in 6 months for another test. Gyny told me it is most prpbable due to inflmmation?
Yes: In short, yes, pneumonia can cause abnormal cells to show up on a sputum cytology- typically we see bacteria or fungus, both possible causes of the pneumonia. Did your doctor or the report tell you exactly what kind of abnormal cells are present? That can say a lot about the source of the abnormal cells. There are numerous other causes for abnormal cells on cytology so talk to your doc to clarify. ...Read more
Atypical Glandular cells: The cervix has two cell types- squamous, and glandular. Most abnormalities are in the squamous cells, and can often be seen with colposcopy. Glandular abnormalities are usually not visible with a magnifying lens at colposcopy, and so biopsies are needed to rule out cancers. Glandular cancers are related to HPV usually like the squamous ones, so HPV testing can also help. ...Read more
