Mri cervical spine states patchy T1
hypointensity within the marrow. Blood tests shows large platelets and 91 platelet count What does this mean?
Needs medical attent: I assume you have a doctor taking care of you. if not seek one, you may actually need to see a hematologist provided a repeat Platelet count shows low platelet count. Platlet counts under 150,000 are considered low. There can be many causes for it. You need to do a CBC(complete blood count) and send us the results. This might give a clue. But further testing will be required if platelets remain lo ...Read more
Marrow aspirate flow cytometry. Whats importance of the dominant markers in lymphocyte vs. blast gates? Eg. Lymph CD2~5~7~38 Blast 22~34~45~117~hladr
Exactly400Characters: I'm not here to answer.This is beyond my expertise. But I would like to remind you,& others,that we are restricted to 400 characters(not words,but individual letters,etc).I would suspect that a question like this would require some more information before someone would want to commit to an answer and,anyways,the person who ordered and/or did the aspirate should be consulted for definitive answers. ...Read more
Fna of cervical node path report:"no morphologic abnormality but lymphoproliferative process of lymphocytes couldn't be excluded."what does this mean?
Don't worry!: This means your lymph node has a lot of normal lymphocytes, which are white blood cells that fight viruses and regulate your immune system. Lymph nodes are packed with them. I notice you have a sore throat. You likely have a virus, and your lymph node is doing what it's supposed to... Proliferating lymphocytes! ...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
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

Easy bruise: These results do not point to an aplastic condition because there is normal WBC count and adequate platelets. They should have done labs for bleeding diathesis such as Prothrombin time(PT/INR) and Partial thromboplastin time (PTT) as well as possible blood clotting factor levels. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Autoimmune: Sounds like the good news is cancer had been ruled out. The tests and physical problems you listed can have many causes. Infections especially viral, are a cause. Medications or environmental exposures are possible. Autoimmune diseases are also a big possibility. Your next step should be a rheumatologist. ...Read more
Cbc shows i'm anemic. Red blood cell morphology showed platelets- adequate, microcytes 1+, polychromasia 1+. What do those results mean?
Nothing alone: I'd think first of iron deficiency but it's not going to reveal the actual cause of your anemia -- which must be found. As a pathologist and lab specialist, i'm constantly reminding people that the results are useful only in the clinical context. Your physician will look at your diet, possible reasons for blood loss, your past & maybe family history and more. Stay proactive. ...Read more

Clinical picture: The real question is, how do you feel? These findings, while abnormal, may never be explained. In isolation, apart from the clinical picture, they are meaningless. I trust the reader is a pathologist or hematologist -- I'm the former, and often remind people that labs, while indispensable, are adjuncts to the clinical findings. ...Read more

Asking what?: If your are requesting a diagnosis online, this is not the appropriate venue. Though the flow cytometry results are not totally normal, your results should be reviewed with the physician who ordered it. This format does not give us the ability to determine if your clinical presentation and lab results are consistent with a specific diagnosis. ...Read more
Pbs show hypochromic rbc.Wbc mostly neutrophils with few atypical lymphocytes noted.No blast noted.Platelet number & morphology within normal.Pls help
Help with symptoms?: Blood counts are done for a reason. Without the reason, lab results may or may not have much meaning. In this case, the results are vague, so don't have much meaning without the whole story. The patients other symptoms will give a better idea what the hypochromic rbc's and atypical lymphocytes mean. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not much-: An important thing to remember is that lab results are not useful unless there is a clinical context. Advice is based on focusing on the patient, not the numbers. Though you mention a history of undiff mixed connective tissue disease, where there symptoms when labs were drawn? Why were they drawn in the first place? Otherwise , it is best to ask your doctor what the results mean. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lab data: The mcv, MCH and MCHC are measurements of the size and hemoglobin content of red blood cells. The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a very non-specific measure of the presence of inflammation. None of these values has any meaning absent their being taken in context of the medical condition of the patient. ...Read more
Wbc: A white count of four on the WBC is actually a normal level. I wouldn't worry about it unless there is a significant elevation and your white count such as 20,000. A hematologist consultation would be pointless for this. A common viral infection can cause elevated lymphocytes greater than neutrophils. I would suggest checking a CBC with differential in a months time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
