Need to see actual: report. 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, pregnant women normally have higher WBC counts and your is in the normal range. ...Read more

The flow cytometry results show no abnormal lymphoid population. What does it mean? What is flow cytometry?

For ab.blood cells: Flow cytometry is routinely used in the diagnosis of health disorders, especially blood cancers, but has many other applications in basic research, clinical practice and clinical trials. A common variation is to physically sort particles based on their properties, so as to purify populations of interest. ...Read more

Flow cytometry shows 53% cd4+30 dual and absolute count of 2,425. Also found some cd4+25 dual 3% absolute count 137. Is this normal? Sign of disease?

Flow cytometry shows 53% cd4+30 dual and absolute count of 2,425. Also found some cd4+25 dual 3% absolute count 137. Is this normal? Sign of disease?

What's the tests for: Since there is no single blood test which provides a diagnosis and flow cytometry is a dynamic process, what was your doctor trying to look for? What were the indications? Were the CD4 CD25 + or -? ...Read more

Can an excisional lymph node biopsy of begnin be accurate when the node didn't have enough cells to do a flow cytometry?

Can an excisional lymph node biopsy of begnin be accurate when the node  didn't have enough cells to do a flow cytometry?

Yes: If the the lymph node biopsy is adequate for evaluation in terms of sample size for the pathologist, then a benign lymph node diagnosis should be adequate even in the absence of flow cytometry data. Flow cytometry is helpful as ancillary data when working up a diagnosis of lymphoma or leukemia in conjunction with the biopsy. But if the biopsy is benign it doesn't add much. ...Read more

Will a flow cytometry test exclude lymphomas such as hodgekins and non hodgekins, plus what other cancers will it exclude? Done at BAYLOR COLLEGE OF

Will a flow cytometry test exclude lymphomas such as hodgekins and non hodgekins,  plus what other cancers will it exclude?  Done at BAYLOR COLLEGE OF

Lymphomas: Flowcytometery test will exclude non-hodgkins lymphoma. However, it does not exclude hodgkins lymphoma. Flowcytometery is done to diagnose and classify blood/bone marrow and lymph node cancers (leukemia and lymphomas). Leukemias are of many type; some of them can not be diagnosed with this test such as myeloproliferative diseases (CML, ET, polycythemia vera etc) and MDS (myelodysplastsic syndrome ...Read more

Can a lymph node fna with flow cytometry rule out lymphoma?

Can a lymph node fna with flow cytometry rule out lymphoma?

Not 100%: Many enlarged lymph nodes are not cancerous are instead benign and a result of another disease process. An fna is a good starting test for evaluating lymph nodes that appear to not be associated with other things that go along with lymphoma, but if suspicion is high, a fine needle aspiration (fna) is not enough and an excisional biopsy is preferred. ...Read more

Why would you do flow cytometry if EBV serology is positive and no blasts were seen in wbc?

Why would you do flow cytometry if EBV serology is positive and no blasts were seen in wbc?

Lymphoma?: Ebv has been associated with post-transplant lumphoprolifeative disorder and i believe this is your question. What the doctors are looking for is the clonality of the b lymphocytes and any rearrangements in the normal genes of your immunoglobulins or antibodies with some of the ebv genes. In many instances there will be no circulating blasts. ...Read more
