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
What does a high EBV viral nuclear capsid antibody, a high EBV viral capsid antibody IgG and a high IgM EBV viral capsid antibody mean, what's it mean?
Likely immunity,,: You've got antibodies to the ebv which likely means you were infected at some time in your life and you recovered and now your body has circulating antibodies to it. An igg antibody in particular indicates long term resistance. This virus usually causes asymptomatic infection so you probably fought it off and weren't aware of it. Best of luck. ...Read more
Recurring fever with 2g proteinuria with 1.1-2.2 serum creat. ebv b19 cmv igg positive/elevated. Neph says igg means no current infection. Workup?
Still ask your doc: Since you have come this far in evaluation and care, it would be most logical and beneficial for you to bring all of your concerns and questions to your doctors since they would know your individual conditions more than anyone online. More online sporadic inquiry at this time may induce more unnecessary anxiety and fear. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ebv panel. Ebv nuc antigen igg=157, early ag igg=12.7, EBV VCA igg=112, EBV VCA igm=10.6. Please explain. Concerned about spleen. Symp=fatigue/fog?
? Active infection: It's impossible for me to answer with certainty since i don't know the normal ranges your lab uses. If early ag & vca igm are elevated above normal this indicates active ebv infection.I don't know if it is acute or chronic without knowing your history. If chronic i see that as a sign of poor immune function.Immune-boosting herbs/supplements & IV vit c drips may help, but find why immunity is poor. ...Read more
Complex: We start treatment on our infants who have fever or the mother has an infection/fever. There are supporting tests (complete blood count and c-reactive protein) that may support but not prove infection. The gold standard is the blood culture that takes 48 hrs to come back (+ or -). Regardless of all that the physician must make a clinical decision about how long to treat the infantbased on these &. ...Read more

No: Epileptic seizures are due to pathological areas of the brain which electrically discharge inappropriately. Some issues triggering increased seizure risk include missing meds; recreational drugs; suddenly stopping tranquilizers, sedatives, or alcohol; irregular sleep; poor nutrition; low blood sugar; intense stress; infections and many more. But no real relation to ambient temperatures. ...Read more
Not usually: These are not entirely uncommon before age 5 when the brain is not very mature and has less ability to suppress excess electrical activity inside the brain. The further it is after that age, it is much more important to bring this to medical or neurological attention. A few early febrile seizures before age 5 usually would not be associated with any significant brain injury or findings. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Past EBV infection: The presence of igg to the ebv capsule means that your body was exposed at some time in the past to ebv and made antibodies against it. It is at its highest level 2-3 months after the initial infection, and it will always be present. An elevated igm level would be consistent with current/recent infection. ...Read more
Blood test done. normal except wbc 11.8, neutrophils 85, lymphocytes 7, mono cutest 1, glucose 111.Rbcs are nomochromic/normocystic is this PNH/leuke?
This is fine: Perhaps a bit of stress effect on your neutrohils. Can you clarify? What makes you think that you have paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria and/or leukemia? If all the WBC's are normal -- and you'd have heard if they weren't -- an adult almost certainly doesn't have leukemia. PNH presents dramatically. I'll bet you're fine. How do you FEEL? If you have symptoms, look for some other reason. ...Read more
20 yrs old male. neutrophil (30%) Basophil (1%) eosinophil (46%) lymphocyte (20%) monocytes (4%) with few bite cells, spherocytes. what's wrong with him? is he allergic and hereditary spherocytosis?
?: Needs a clinical hematologist input, blood picture in isolation of clinical context doesn't mean much, can be allergic, or other eosinophilic syndromes with this high percentage, although percentages again don't mean much, absolute numbers matter more, clinical evaluation matters most, good luck ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Help with blood results: EBV VCA IgG >8.0, EBV IgM neg. CMV antibody IgG 38, EBV NA antibody >8.0. Can it explain my body aches? Why or why not?
Old infection: with EBV is the pattern of IgG positive (including NA) and IgM negative. I assume the CMV which is a different infection is also the IgG? If so, both are old infections and do not usually explain your current symptoms. This is a pattern that shows immunity to these infections. Look for other causes. ...Read more
