Monocytes In Csf
Spinal tap results. Csf beta% raised slighty. Csf albumin raised slighty. Cytology report showed increased immature and mature lymphocytes and monocyt?
Check with oncology: The cytology report is a bit concerning and you need to follow-up with your oncologist. Anytime you see increased lymphocytes in the absence of an infection, you have to watch for lymphoma. Your oncologist should be able to give you more information depending on how increased the lymphocyte # is above the normal for your lab. ...Read more
In CSF Volume=2.5mL
Is it GBS ?
2.8 oligoclonal bands IgG in CSF. Zero serum bands in CSF. Why does Mayo Clinic standards require 4 oligoclonal IGg CSF for MS diagnosis?
Other causes: Oligoclonal bands can be present in some other conditions such as infections and inflammation of the central nervous system. Increasing the threshold for diagnosing MS by requiring at least 4 oligoclonal bands, allows to exclude these other causes and diagnose MS with greater certainty. ...Read more
Lumbar puncture results:
Multiple IgG oligoclonal bands detected in CSF and serum, most bands unique to CSF.
IgG value 9.43, range 6 - 15
Is this MS?
Consistent: But diagnosis of MS should be based on history, physical exam, results of MRI films, and spinal fluid is useful in ambiguous cases. However, elevation of oligoclonal bands can be seen in several disorders and NOT definitive on its own. Have your doctor now put the whole picture in place. Most likely MS, but other possibilities exist. ...Read more
What is the significance of raising band neutrophils and normal lymphocyte in CSF in case of "streptococcus pneumoniae " meningitis ?
Meningitis: In bacterial meningitis the numbers of wbcs in the CSF is elevated and usually consists of cells in the neutrophilic series. Many labs indicate that up to 5 wbc/ml is normal, but my practice is to consider any neutrophils to be abnormal, but this must be evaluated in the context of the clinical presentation. With strep pneumoniae the protein is likely to be high and the glucose significantly low. ...Read more
LP Done. Monocytes 1%, Serum IgG 587/mg/DL,Albumin 4100ml,IGG Index 1.1mg,WBC 23/mm3,RBC 1/mm3, CSF IGG 3.6 mg/DL,Lymphocytoid 97%, protein, neutrophils, glucose, CSF albumin all norm. Any ideas?
CSF Results: If I am reading the results correctly, there appears to be a mononuclear pleocytosis with normal protein, glucose and essentially normal immune response. The fluid analysis cn be seen in many disorders including viral meningitis. Need additional information. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In a WBC test can neutrophil absolute and lymphocyte absolute absolute be slightly elevated simultaneously? Yet their percentages in the norm.
Yes: Particularly if your overall white blood cell count is at the upper limit of normal. It usually doesn't mean much unless there is some concern for an infectious or inflammatory process going on. ...Read more
Cbc showed elevated WBC level of 16.7k/ul and CSF cell count with diff. Showed lymphocytes @86 and monocytes @14. history of arachnoid cyst what is it?
Low wbc,low rbc,low igm,low neutrophil,low monocyte,hematocrit and hemoglobin levels are within range,mcv high,an ocassional myocelyte. Pt/ptt unknow?
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
I recently had a lumbar puncture. Cell count differentials came back 94%lymphs, fluid and 6% mono/macro, fluid. 1 WBC was counted in sample. ?
Sounds normal: Have no clue why LP was done, but information you provide is within the normal range. ...Read more
Can a low lymphocyte level be normal with strep throat? wbc were around 19,000 , neutrophils 70% lympocytes were 2% .
Can't completely: Can't completely explain as I'm uncertain what the other 28% of the cells showed. With the infection your neutrophils go up but there are also other cells like monocytes that might go up. It's also important to know what your blood count look like before this infection. Your physician has all this information and this would be the best person to discuss this. ...Read more
Wbc went from 2.6-1.7, absolute neutrophil 0.6-0.4 in 6 months. Monocytes and lymphocytes are still high. Could this be a type of leukemia?
Urine WBC Esterase 2+ Protein Trace Occult Blood 3+ WBC>30 RBC11-30 Epithelial Cells non renal>10 mucus pres Bacteria few.Have MGUS,Lymphs always high?
R/O UTI: If you have symptoms I would recommend empiric treatment with macrobid pending urine culture and sensitivity . Given underlying MGUS and weakened immune system. Follow up with your doctor for exam and lab testing. Also renal ultrasound/urology consult with cystoscopy may be needed. Increase fluids especially cranberry juice and coconut water ...Read more
It depends: One cannot look just at lynphocyte and neutrophil percentages. It must be interpreted in the context of the total white blood cell count. ...Read more
