What is atypical epithelial hyperplasia and hyperorthokeratosis?

What is atypical epithelial hyperplasia and hyperorthokeratosis?

Description of skin: Hyperorthokeratosis means that the surface layer of the skin is thickened (extra layers of keratin) and hyperplasia means that there is an increased growth of the cells. The adjective "atypical" means that microscopically the appearance of these cells is not quite normal, although likely they are not abnormal enough to diagnose cancer or a precancerous change. Check with your doc to follow-up. ...Read more

What causes renal epithelial cells in my urine?

What causes renal epithelial cells in my urine?

Interstitial problem: Renal epithelial cells are not normally found in the urine. Their presence reflects inflammation of the interstitial portion of the kidney and can be due to drugs, infections, or other diseases. Renal epithelial cells need to be differentiated from look like sunny side up eggs. Other findings could include blood and white blood cells. I'd recommend that your urine be examined by a nephrologist. ...Read more

My urinalysis shows i have many epithelial cells?

My urinalysis shows i have many epithelial cells?

Probably nothing: Epithelial cells are skin cells and cells that line hollow organs, like the urinary bladder and urethra. Epithelial cells seen on a urine analysis can be normal. However, if there are other abnormalities like blood or WBC'S , or if there are worrisome accompanying symptoms, further investigation is warranted. Otherwise, another specimen may need to be collected using a "clean catch" technique. ...Read more

What type?: There are a number of different types of epithelial cells that may be present in the urine. Squamous cells indicate contamination with skin or vaginal contents. None of the other epithelial cells are not normally present in urine. ...Read more

What does it mean if you have a result of many epithelial cells in a urine test?

What does it mean if you have a result of many epithelial cells in a urine test?

Vaginal cells in it: Epithelial cells come from vagina and introitus and not from the urinary tract ; are a normal finding ; no cause for alarm. Squamous epithelial cells are a different matter ; could be from a squamous bladder growth. This would be uncommom in someone as young as you unless you born with bladder exstrophy. ...Read more

What are epithelial cells and what does it mean when they show up in a urine culture?

What are epithelial cells and what does it mean when they show up in a urine culture?

Contamination: Epithelial cells are the cells that cover the skin. Generally, a "clean catch" urine specimen will be free of epithelial cells, however if they are present, it means the specimen wasn't completely clean, and may have been contaminated by the skin surface. This can sabotage a good urine culture, and you might need to repeat it. (unless the culture was negative anyway). ...Read more

What can be done for cervical intra epithelial neoplasia 1to2 as stated on a histopathology report?

What can be done for cervical intra epithelial neoplasia 1to2 as stated on a histopathology report?

Surveillance/treat: Cin i or cin ii of the cervix can be treated various ways. For mild dysplasia (cin i) surveillance with repeat colposcopy in 4-6 months should suffice since half of these lesions regress on their own. Cin ii (hgsil/mod dysplasia) can also be followed but more frequently or treated with leep to both remove the lesion & ensure both complete removal & check for worse pathology. Your doc will d/w you. ...Read more

I consistently have high rates of epithelial cells and mucus in my urinalyses. What does this mean?

Not sure: Could be contamination from the skin, but, the best way to obtain a clean specimen to test would then likely be via a straight catheter to obtain a sample of urine sterilely from the bladder. ...Read more

Occasional gram positive bacilli with occasional gram positive cocci in pairs and few epithelial cells means?

Depends: What was the specimen that was tested? Why was it tested? 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. Depending on the specimen, what you described may be normal. ...Read more

I am 55 female. urine report shows pus cell- 6-8/HPF, R.C.B'S- 1-2/HPF, EPITHELIAL CELLS 8-10/HPF. is tht normal?

I am 55 female. urine report shows pus cell- 6-8/HPF, R.C.B'S- 1-2/HPF, EPITHELIAL CELLS 8-10/HPF. is tht normal?

Contaminated urine: If the urine was collected using good cleaning prior to urination, then it is not normal. If a woman does not use a good clean catch technique then the urine can be contaminated from surrounding secretions. There being more epithelial cells than blood cells indicates that this was most likely a contaminated urine specimen. The urine test should be repeated using good clean catch technique. ...Read more

My pus cell is 6-8HPF and epithelial cell 35-40HPF . Active motile 40%. Morphology 60%. Volume 0.5cc. Is it normal or cause to serious injure.

If this is a: SPERM examination , NO its not "normal" This needs explanation from a UROLOGIST since the exact reason for the low motility and low normal morphology may be a number of pre-existing and/or temporary conditions!! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

In aug my s. Creatinine was 1.02, in nov 13, it is 1.12 mg/dl. Can this just happen without any serious problem? Pus cell+epithelial cell 4-6 hpf.

Ignore it: Creatinine varies a bit from day to day. You may also have put on some muscle during the season. You take Naproxen and if you also get a little dehydrated, you can actually raise your renal function tests quite a bit more. ...Read more
