Few Squamous Epithelial Cells
I just had my annual Pap smear done and the results say "MODERATE GRAM POSITIVE RODS SEEN, FEW SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS SEEN" what does this mean?
Skin bacteria: Considered to be contamination-not serious and a common finding. ...Read more
Occult blood 3+, protein 2+, rbc 20-40, wbc packed, leukocyte esterase 3+, bacteria few, squamous epithelial cells 6-10. All else Norm. What does this mean.
Probable UTI: "All else normal"?? What's left? That's most of the urinalysis. It strongly suggests you have a urinary tract infection. It could be an STD, if at risk, but less likely. Certain non-infectious kidney diseases could cause these things. But UTI is by far the best bet. Discuss with the doctor who ordered the test; probably you need an antibiotic prescription. ...Read more
Non-diagnostic on my thyroid biopsy, few benign squamous epithelial cells & small amount of colloid. No thyroid epithelial cells are seen? Am I ok?
Need another biopsy: Try ultrasound guided biopsy; or try another specialist. ...Read more

Test reads squamous epithelial cells analysis is rare. Bacteria is also rare. Not sure what that means?
No worries...: These results (likely for urinalysis) are unremarkable. The term "rare" in this context means "very few in number." In other words, on microscope exam of the urine sample, there were very few bacteria (meaning not worrisome) and you had some squamous cells (very common, skin cells from skin outside of urethra [eg from penis or from your hand in close contact]). ...Read more
What to do if I have squamous epithelial cell in my urine analysis. It is 0-3. is it anything to worry?
No: This just signifies contamination.Get a more detailed answer ›
Epithelial cell abnormality, High-Grade Squamous Intraephithelial lesion, atypical glandular cells and sever dysplasia. What should my concern be?
Is this the result of your pap smear? if yes, then it means moderate or severe cervical intraepithelial neoplasia or carcinoma in situ, which in some cases could lead to cervical cancer. you need Colposcopy and possible biopsy.
Talk to your Gynecologist regarding a treatment plan. ...Read more
What does rare squamous epithelial cell laden with bacteria present on cytopsin slide it's the result from my sons bronchoscopy?
Bronchoscopy AND analysis of specimen: Bronchoalveolar lavage, washings or brushings minimizes the contamination with upper respiratory flora and therefore increases isolation of the etiologic agent. However, the procedure is invasive. If bronchoalveolar lavage, washing or brushings fail to diagnosis the etiologic agent of pneumonia, a percutaneous transtracheal aspiration or lung biopsy may be collected. These are extremely invasive procedures, but will yield a sterile specimen, free of contamination from the normal flora of the upper respiratory tract ...Read more
I had a urine test. It showed the urine was cloudy & the squamous epithelial cell count was abnormal (>50/lpf abnormal) What could this mean?
Can you explain my papresults. Endocervical/transformation zone component present, EPITHELIAL CELL ABNORMALITY, Low Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion?
A common pap result.: This is a common pap smear result and represents the first stage of what Pathologist classify as not completely normal cervical epithelial cells acquired from the junction of the outer cervix and the inner cervix. (transformation zone). The pap smear is mode up of "dead" cells and sometimes they look like this report. Your MD may want to repeat this pap in a few months so check with them. ...Read more
WBC/HPF25-50, RVC/HPF2-5 Urine Epithelial Cells 1+No squamous epithelial cells 1+ Squamous epithelial urine bacteria 2+ urine moucose 1+ whatdoesitmean?
Your urinalysis shows 25-50 White Blood Cells per High Power Field. The other values are either normal or just a little abnormal. This is very likely a urine infection. Do you have any symptoms? You probably need antibiotics.
Try to get a urine culture first. Your primary doctor can prescribe.
Consult me on Health Tap if you want to discuss more.
Dr. Long ...Read more
My urinalysis results show: occasional leucocyets, epithelial cells 1/hpf and non squamous epi cell. There's no bacteria. What does this indicate?
"possibly a UTI":
While this could represent a lower urinary tact infection, this would most likely represent a contaminated specimen (especially a voided specimen in a female).
Most urologists are cautious about "treating the urinalysis" and would follow with a urine culture and sensitivity. ...Read more
I had a Pap smear and it stated possible low grade squamous epithelial lesion and mild changes to inner endocervical cells. Should I be concerned?
Abnormal pap: You may have had HPV testing done along with the Pap itself. If negative, then the risk of cancer is low, and you can repeat the Pap in a year. If you didn't have HPV testing, or if the HPV test was positive, you need more testing. Go see a GYN. Overall, though, the risk is still low, and many abnormalities resolve on their own. Bottom line, don't worry and follow up as your doc recommends. ...Read more
My mother's laboratory test say's that she is +ve in squamous epithelial cells. I just want to know more about this cells and if it's dangerous? Thanx
SPUTUM Gram Stain1+ Squamous Epithelial Cells 2+ Polymorphonuclear Leukocytes 2+ Mixed Gram Positive Organisms 2+ Normal Flora Is this normal.?
Non diagnostic: The squamous epithelium means the sputum came from mouth not lungs (no squamous in lungs/bronchi) but leukocytes means infection. So, this sputum has infection but can't use it to diagnose due to contamination from mouth normal saliva that has usual mouth bacteria (called normal flora). Actinomycosis is being appropriately treated with penicillin. Discuss with your doc to see if need sputum resent ...Read more
I get my lab result they said there is epithelial cell abnormality low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion, colposcopy required, what I have? Dangrous
Cervical changes: You have changes to the outer cells of the cervix---a sign that you've come in contact with the hpv virus. A colposcopy allows your md to look at these cells with the aid of a microscope and possibly take a biopsy to see if they are pre-cancerous. Likely your body will fight off the virus and the cells will return to normal. Follow all your doctors recommendations though, to prevent cancer. ...Read more
Gram Stain Result Few Polys Rare Gram negative rods N>10, 000 CFU/mL normal upper respiratory flora present no squamous epithelial cells seen?
Pap smear reveals mainly superficial and intermediate squamous epithelial cells. Few endocervical cells and marked leukocytosis with candida buds?
In a recent Urine Test of a son diagnosed Cerebral Palsy, the report shows Squamous Epithelial Cell. 0-1/hpf and Pus..... 0-1/hpf, what does it mean?
Normal: This is within the normal range of findings in a randomly obtained urine. The rare epithelial cells are shed by the urinary tract & mean nothing in scant numbers. The rare pus cell is occasionally seen. If it were 10 or more per high power field the doc might get a culture. A study to this level would usually point out any bacteria or yeast cells seen that would suggest a problem. ...Read more
Dx corneal ulcer 2 nights ago. Gram stain: v. rare squamous epithelial cells, no polys, v. rare gram neg rods. I have f/u, just want a sense of how bad?
Contact lens wearer?: Most corneal ulcers are from contact lens abuse. I hope your lens was taken out and you are started on antibiotic medication. It is a rare corneal ulcer that does not respond readily to topical antibiotics. I hope you are seeing an ophthalmologist and not an optometrist. ...Read more
If >100 squamous epithelial cells/lpf indicates contamination of urine specimen, do I still need worry abt high wbc, pos leukocyte esterase & mucous?
What's wrong? UA that are off. Renal epithelial cells, mucus, amorphous calcium exalate, leukocytes estarase, squamous epithelial, WBCS, bacteria.
Hello. What to make of labs? Leukocyte Esterase +1, Squamous Epithelial Cells moderate, WBCs 1-5, RBCs 1-5, Clarity slightly cloudy. Blood: e-GFR 102, C-reactive protein 1.7 (I'm usually 0). Thanks!
Labs: Hello, you don't state what is being checked specifically, but this looks like urine that has been contaminated with a vaginal discharge (leuk est+1, squam epi mod and few RBCs) and blood test with CRP (slight elevation) and GFR is reduced but within normal range. I would repeat UA if you have symptoms and get CLEAN CATCH! Thanks ...Read more
