Reactive changes,,,: These are changes that reflect a reaction of the blood to some stress. The toxic granulation is seen in the white cells from inflammation, while the polychromasia indicates release of premature red cells into the bloodstream due to marrow stress. The poikilocytosis also results from effects on the red cells producing abnormal shapes. The multiple myeloma can help these changes. Good luck. ...Read more

Low hemoglobine, hematocrit&creatinine w/anisocytosis poikilocytosis anisochromia microcytes dianocytes schitocytes difusse basophilia, what it means?

Heads up -- vasculitis in the gall bladder wall is usually nothing to worry about though it scares some pathologists into overcalls. ...Read more

Cbc: low WBC (3.39), low neutrophils (36%), high lymphs (57%). Also something called poikilocytosis and ovalocytes in blood.  Is this concerning?

Probably not: Wbc is low and absolute neuts about 1000 (3.39 x 36%). If no infection or mouth sores i would not be too excited. Repeat labs. Could just be a passing viral infection or it could just be you. African americans and those of northern european ancestry often run a lowish wbc. Poik and oval is just some variation in rbc shape. ...Read more
