What does dense subepithelial lymphocytic infiltrate with small lymphocytes and scattered plasma cells mean?
Inflammation: 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, There is no cancer. There is chronic inflammation in the skin and the cause is not apparent from the information you provided. It would be useful for you and your doctor to talk to the pathologist who wrote the report. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My test report shows intermediate squamous cells metaplastic cells and neutrophils cells what does that means?
What is meant by abundant benign appearing epithelial cells hemosiderin-laden macrophages and colloid present. Also scattered micro follicles noted?
It's good news: Sounds like you had a biopsy. I'm guessing thyroid. Epithelial cells, colloid, micro follicles all belong there and confirm an adequate sample was taken. No cancer cells are reported (good news!) hemosiderin laden macrophages can mean local bleeding, inflammation, or (rarely) that you store too much iron. Please ask your doctor about whether you should have your iron storage levels checked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Clarify!: What kind of test was it? And why was it done. Epithelial cells can be found in several different lab tests. We need to know the source of the specimen, why you had it done, and what symptoms you may have. So ask again and give that info and we'll see if we can give you some insight. ...Read more
Please interpret pericardium tissue
mononuclear infiltrates with rare polymorphnuclear leukocytes & eosinophiles. Hemosiderin-laden macrophages.
Not tumor: This is the site of an old bleed and probably infection or physical injury. The key is that there's not tumor found. Any interpretation beyond this without a history would be meaningless. ...Read more
Pap smear reveals mainly superficial and intermediate squamous epithelial cells.few endocervical cells and marked leukocytosis with candida buds?
Pap bacteriology results were rare white blood cells, moderate epithelial cells, moderate bacteria, no clue cells. What does this mean?

Abundant benign appearing follicular epithelial cells, hemosidering-laden macrophages &colloid present. & scattered micro follicles noted. Favor adenomatoid nodule. What is adenomatoid nodule?
May be abnormal cell: It is a term used by Pathologists to imply that your cells are somewhat deranged and not entirely normal. Sometimes this means that such cells can deteriorate further and may become cancerous. So it requires close monitoring. ...Read more
Close FU: Perhaps repeat in 6 months to make sure. ...Read more
Leukemias: Acute leukemias are those with large numbers of immature cells that grow quickly. They can be either myeloid or lymphoid in lineage. Chronic leukemias have more mature cells, a longer course, but can also be myeloid or lymphoid. A hematologist/oncologist is generally the treating physician, and a hematopathologist is the one who give the specific syping. ...Read more
Subepithlial stroma is infiltrated with plasma cells. Plasma cells found in skin biopsy?
What does it mean? Please explain?
Cervical smear test result contains superficial and intermediate squamous cells metaplastic cells & neutrophils cells in background neg for NILM?
Nilm: Means negative for intraepithelial lesions or malignancy (so negative for bad things - I.e., all good). The squamous, metaplastic and neutrophil cells are all normal cells. The idea of Pap smear is to catch cervical precancer or cancer and it doesn't see either here which is great! ...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
ask yiour Gynecologi: The doctor who did the test can explain it better. But basically the test is looking for cancer cells which your report says you do not have at the present time. But continue to follow with annual pap tests so that this abnormalityy(minimal abnormality) resolves or gets monitored for any worsening. It is all a very slow process, not of any immediate concern but not always predictable. ...Read more

Normal blood count with blood smear leukocyte; particles of toxic granulation, atypical cells lenfomo nuclear, one cell view of downey. Male, 58 ?
Typical cell: This is a typical cell type (both the lymphocytes with toxic granulation and the Downey cell, which similar is a lymphocyte with features consistent with activation). These occur in the context of infection or stress when the lymphocytes are receiving "danger" signals. Can't comment conclusively without knowing more about the clinical situation, but not likely something that needs follow up. ...Read more

Lymphocytes: T cells, different types, master the specific immune system, while B cells mainly produce different types of antibodies, under the the control T cells, to fight invading microorganisms and/or invading antigens, just simply put for a very complex system (the immune system) ...Read more
Manage immunity: Helper T cells are unit commanders that instruct soldiers on the front lines. They help B cells secrete protective antibodies. They help "killer" T cells attack infected cells. They also influence the "flavor" of the immune response to favor more of an allergic-type response versus more of a flu-like response. They are CD4 positive cells that are destroyed in HIV/AIDS leading to immunodeficiency. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pap smear?: Are you referring to a Pap smear result of AGUS- "atypical glandular cells of undetermined significance"? If so, this is a cytologic description/category of Pap smear results. Basically the pathologist is saying there are some glandular cells that don't look " quite right". You should see your gynecologist who will most likely perform an exam called a colposcopy- basically looking at your cervix ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
T cell lymphoma?: I think you mean t cell lymphoma, a cancer of t cells or thymocytes that can cause lymph gland enlargement, low blood counts, fevers, and sweats. A particular subtype is gamma-delta (the greek letter for d) hepatosplenic lymphoma, which could also be what you're referring to. A good source of information is the leukemia & lymphoma society of america's website. ...Read more
Blood vessel liners: There are very flat cells that line the entire inside of your circulatory system. They look like fried eggs, sunny-side-up with the nucleus being the yolk. A capillary is a long row of these rolled into a tube with a little fibrous reinforcement. Despite their simplicity, they keep your blood from clotting when it shouldn't and provide a perfect barrier for what shouldn't leave your blood. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cell transformation: Metaplasia represents transformation of cells from a normal to an abnormal state. It is felt that tumors begin in a field and normal appearing cells begin transformation to the premalignant state by producing tumor proteins. The cells then move on to a more active state, metaplasia, where the cell structure begins to look abnormal, that is dysplastic and finally to early low grade malignancies ...Read more
Lymphcytes: When blood is examined under the microscope an array of cells are defined mostly RBC but also larger white cells known as polymorphoneuclear WBC's, marcrophages and a group of small round cells known as lymphocytes. Robt Good was able to subclassify them into T and B cells, the former providing the cytotoxic CD8 cells and B cells producing antibody to attack invaders. ...Read more
Natural killer cells: Natural killer, a white blood cell, cells are rapid responses to virally infected cells and respond to tumor formation, acting at around 3 days after infection. This is one of our first lines of defense for infection and cancers. Without this our body is much more prone to infection. ...Read more
