Atypical Reactive Lymphocytes
Pathologic diagnosis....Resected thymus shows reactive b cell hyperplasia vs low grade b cell lympho proliferative disorder. Is this lymphoma?
Could be...: Certain lymphomas grow so slow that sometimes it is difficult for the pathologist to make the call between malignant or not. I suspect they may do additional work on the specimen and that your doctor will evaluate you further with labs, additional scans or another biopsy. If you have not seen a hematologist, maybe this is the time. Don't panic, just follow up his/her lead. Best to you. ...Read more
Platelet, neutrophil, lymphocyte, monocyte, eosinophil, basophil, & immature granulocytes are normal. Which cancers r ruled-out? All of them? Why?
Leukemia: The short answer is that if your peripheral count is totally normal, it is unlikely that you have leukemia but, when you are talking about cancer in general, you are also referring to a multitude of solid organs from where cancers can originate like the lungs, liver, stomach, colon to list a few. There is no single blood test that can rule in or out all cancers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Crp .1 mg/l. Ra/anti-dsdna antibs/ana all negative. Why might hematology report indicate "suggested reactive or inflammatory process"? Also noted subset of reactive lymphocytes, occasionally atypical.
See below : Reactive (atypical) lymphocytes are usually due to viral illness or stressor on the body. It could be due to a medicine reaction or autoimmune disorder as well. Your CRP level of 0.1 is very low which is good. And your ra/anti ds dna are negative. So overall they didn't find anything abnormal and they called it possibly due to reactive process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hb 10.3, platelets 105000, normoblasts=03/100wbcs. Rbcs morphology is normochromic. Normocytic majority of lymphocytes are atypical. Mononeuclear smal?
We can't answer: Especially with the abnormal morphology of the lymphocytes, you need to speak either with the treating physician -- primary care or consulting hematologist -- or with a physician you trust. No one here can tell you what this means though it is of course very concerning. ...Read more
+ ANA test, severe neutropenia with large granular lymphocytes, high monocytes and lymphocytes. Osteoarthritis. Bone marrow biopsy negative. Idea?
ANCA: ANCA=anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies are not known to be associated with any morphological abnormalities of a person's neutrophils. They are asosciated with a number of potential disease states of importance, including Wgener's granulomatosis, a destructive disease that may involve lungs, airways, kidneys and sometimes sinuses or related structures. ...Read more
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
Pap smear says atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance.No trichomonas seen, scanty polymorph nuclear cells, gram positive bacilli.Mean?
11.6 wbc, 6.45 absolute neutrophils, 3.78 absolute lymphocytes, 0.95 absolute monocyte, 0.02 immature neutrophils. Lab mark them high. Causes?
May be none.: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, this count may be your normal. The count is only mildly increased and if you have no symptoms, do not be concerned.

Male 38: are anti-retro viral drugs helpful for low wbc? My WBC is bw 2.8-3.4. Basophile 1; monocytes 6; eosinophil 3; lymphocyte 44; neutrophil 2
Multiple enlarged axilla lymph nodes (largest is 2cm) normal chest xray.High Wbc. High absolute neutropolis.High lymphocytes. Lymphoma Cancer?
Dont assume cancer: never make assumptions regarding cancer...you are right to be concerned and you should pursue further work-up...this will include a history and complete exam with possible further x-rays....the enlarged nodes could represent infection and not cancer...be prepared for biopsy to make final diagnosis ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Am 40years male. Esr shows 30mm. Hb 15. Rbc 5.20. Wbc 6800.neutrophilis 52. Lymphocyte 44. Eosinophilis 03. Monocytes01. Basophilis 00. Pls suggest?
I suggest...: Please forgive my frankness. I strongly suggest that you simply stop paying attention to labs. I'm a pathologist and lab specialist. Sed rate / ESR almost never means anything. The rest of your CBC is normal or close enough that as long as you feel well, you should be thanking the Universe for good health. You're a human being, Josh, not a bunch of numbers. Be glad. ...Read more

4yr old daughter with CBC levels- wbc11.6 rbc4.62 hemoglobin 12.6 mch-27.2 platelets 420 lymphocytes57.7 neutrophils33 basoph-1.0 abs lymphocytes6.68?
Normal values: I'm not sure what your question is, but all of these values are completely normal for a 4 y/o. White blood cell count (WBC) is normal as is the differential count which indicates different types of white blood cells present. Not anemic and red blood cells normal amount of hemoglobin (mch). Platelets in normal range so right number to clot blood and not too high which can indicate inflammation. ...Read more

Is this new?: If your previous CBC's have been okay, I'd address whether you are iron deficient (which seems likely) and if so why (your physician can address this with you), follow the very mild neutropenia (not a danger yet) and since the anisocytosis is marked, ask whether the lab's pathologist might be good enough to look at the smear. ...Read more
Excellent question.: Monoclonal lymphocytes mean that a single lymphocyte has been stimulated to divide and create an expanded number of identical daughter cells. There are enough of them to be identified by a test (flow cytometry) but not enough to meet criteria for a leukemia. There may be a genetic predisposition. This is a benign condition, but there is uncertainty as to whether it might progress to malignancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
