Daughter 5 yrs tested for a uti all came back negative had moderate leukocyte always find white blood cells do cultures come back neg any ideas why?
YES...: Analysis of the urine can suggest infection but not confirm a UTI. Culture is best. Culture will not be positive if infection due to viruses or if inflammation is of a non infectious origin. Presence of WBCs do not always signal an infection. If your daughter has persistence of WBC especially if symptomatic I will be very glad to help you troubleshoot that. Take care! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Mono not specific: Monospot is not specific for EBV infection and may be positive due to other viral infections.

I was immunized for HBV as a chile, but recent blood test shows hep b; wil lanother vaccine shot work within a specific time frame?
No: If you have hepatitis b (with a positive hbsag), then there's no benefit to getting vaccinated; you need treatment.

Semantics: Test accuracy applies to reliability of test results as ordered and it is not likely that your tests were inadvertently reported as normal, even though not impossible.

Consistently low cd4 counts- slightly under cut off point- but hiv neg. otherwise healthy, other immune labs ok, no cause found. Do u just monitor?
Depends: Since CD4 assay is not a routine procedure, you need to tell us why it was obtained in the first place. If you have problem with frequent infections for example, you should go to a center specialized in immunology (University or tertiary clinic like Mayo, Cleveland etc) and get further evaluation. If you are healthy otherwise, then getting regular follow-up would be fine. ...Read more
My dad has MRSA and I've been in contact with him . been sick for months and the basic cell count come out negative they won't do MRSA blood test ?
Blood cultures?: If you want doctors to do blood cultures for MRSA there has to be a good clinical indication for this, and without knowing what is going on with you and examining you there is no way to comment on this. What do you mean by "sick for months"? MRSA infection is not likely to go on for months untreated. You would likely die of this. You need to have discussion with the doctor. ...Read more
