Is Staphylobacillus A Possible Cell Morphology
My pus cell is 6-8HPF and epithelial cell 35-40HPF. Active motile 40%. Morphology 60%. Volume 0.5cc. Is it normal or cause to serious injure.
As used in pathology, this is the abnormal shapes and arrangements of organs, tissues, cells, and components of cells that enable the diagnosis of disease and help to understand its impact. Some diseases involve only abnormal function of normal-appearing parts and thus ...Read more
Many possibilities: RBC morphology is the appearance of the red cells under the microscope. The are numerous abnormalities that can occur in different types of illness. Some of these may be due to a primary blood disorder such as sickle cell anemia. Others may be due abnormalities such as iron deficiency. Others may occur as a result of other diseases such as kidney failure. Some are of no consequence. ...Read more

My semen analysis report Colour-geyirish-white
pus cells-plenty motility-85%
plz justify it!
Can He make me pregnant?
Motility count 78million
Pus cells 4-6HPF
Probably: A sperm count of 78 million is potent. Even with some sluggish sperm or sperm with abnormal morphology, there should be enough normal sperm to get the job done. (It only takes a count of 15 million) Best wishes! ...Read more
Is it normal for a 2.5 YO to have results of Anisocytosis: Rare Burr Cells: Slight, Microcytes: Rare, Polychromasia: Rare on a morphology Report?
No, your comments are not "normal". If your child has the issues you report you must continue to see a specialist.
If you are not satisfied with the doctor you take tour child, have one of your friends refer you to a doctor with whom you will be more satisfied.
Wish the baby well — please keep me posted; we can all learn something. ...Read more
Semen volume=3.5mls, count= 62million, motility=38.2percent, morphology=70percent(norma)l, ph= 7.0, pus cell 9-10hpf, yeast=positive. Is this normal
Semen count normal: The values you listed above all are well above the lower reference limits established by the World Health Organization. If you and your partner are trying to conceive and have not been successful after 1 year, I recommend you meet with a physician specializing in fertility for further workup and to discuss options. ...Read more
Reactive cellular changes &/or repair are present. Fungal organisms morphologically consistent with candida species present. Endometrial cells present?
Yelling at us: There is no need to yell on this application. All questions are considered. This is out of context and with no medical history attached upon which to comment. Your physician who ordered this test is responsible to interpret it for you. ...Read more
Low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts?
Means nothing alone: In isolation from the patient story, lab tests mean nothing. This is especially true since we have no actual numbers. The low MCV and high rbc would make any physician think of a thalassemia, but it would be criminal to speculate further without knowing more about the person. If this is a you or a family member, you have a right and a duty to request your doctor's thoughts, or get consultation. ...Read more
What does having low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts mean?
Thalassemia?: Low MCV (small sized) red cells with increased number of rbcs is most commonly seen with thalassemia, an inherited hemoglobin abnormality, but it is not associated with low neutrophils. Not all low neutrophil counts are significant, as normal varies with ethnic background. Infections can cause temporary low neutrophils. See a hematologist to sort this out. ...Read more
Had sperm test. Results showed normal count, motility +morphology. White blood cells were elevated and culture showed Strep.beta hemolyticus group G?
Need to treat: Infection. The results (I presume in your male partner) suggest infection in the genital tract and should be treated. It would be prudent to consult the doctor who ordered the test. ...Read more
Stage 2 vericocele in left testis diabetic from 8 years semen count 46.8 million/ml, motility 60%, morphology 70%, immature germ cell present, is it gud?
The report is good and favorable to impregnate suitable females. But note: some 15% of adult men has some degree of varicocele, usually in left side, and carrying no clinical significance. So, don't worry, but make sure the female partner is evaluated if infertility is concerned since females contribute some 50% as direct causes for couple's infertility.
Talk with treating doctor timely.

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
Cbc showed I'm anemic. Had a red blood cell morphology done which showed platelets- adequate, microcytes 1+, polychromasia 1+. What does that mean?
Part of anemia: Polychromasia means lots of immature red blood cells in the blood stream. When red blood cells don't have enough nutrients they can be smaller (microcyte) or bigger (macrocyte) than usual. Microcytes + anemia is usually due to iron deficiency. Polychromasia means lots of immature red blood cells are in the blood. It's a normal response to anemia due to the bone marrow revving up production. ...Read more
If normal morphology for red cells can a renal cause be eliminated for a microscopic hematuria in urine?ct scan normal no infection.
See a Urologist:
CT with contrast is good to find small renal masses. Really tiny ones not on CTs can still cause hematuria, but are often not clinically significant, at least not yet. A follow up CT sometime may be considered.
Blood may be from the ureter or bladder, requiring CT/U/S or poss. MRI.
Blood can come from diffuse renal disease, esp. if there is also protein in the urine. CT may not see this. ...Read more
Usually none: The vast majority of leukemias and lymphomas arise in people with no identifiable risk factors. In people with transplants, the epstein-barr virus is often a factor; herpes 7 / kaposi's virus drives others, and helicobacter in the stomach even drives a few. Down's trisomy 21 and ataxia-telangiectasia carrier status are risks; old radiation and some chemo cause some leukemias. The rest? Luck. ...Read more
Lining of cervix:
The uterine cervix is lined by squamous epithelium on the outside, but the canal of the cervix is lined by columnar cells and these cells are called endocervical cells. See this site for more info.

Clarify!: What kind of test was it? And why was it done. Epithelial cells can be found in several 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
Abnormal cells: Squamous cells line the junction on the cervix between the vaginal cells and the endometrial canal cells; pap smear screen for abnormal appearances in these cells as they indicate precursors to cervical cancer. Atypical means abnormal, so atypical squamous cells mean that the cells on the cervix are abnormal, but mildly abnormal, and not abnormal enough to classify as dysplasia. ...Read more
IUDs are Safe:
If the idea of having something inserted into your body and leaving it there for years freaks you out, you can rest easy: A new study published in the May issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology found that the intrauterine device...is a safe birth control method for women of any age, including teenagers.

Supply cell energy.: Mitochondria are where most cell energy is produced. This is used to perform functions in the cell and the body. Many cells, like muscle/heart muscle have a lot of mitochondria in them so they can actively do things like contract and move the blood/bones/etc. They are connected to. Sperm cells have a lot of mitochondria that supply enrergy to their flagella/tail so they can travel in fluid. ...Read more
