Polycythemia?: Are you a smoker? Your labs look like a patient with polycythemia. High hemoglobin, low mcv. The neutrophils and lymphocytes are abnormal. Missing information. What is the white blood cell count? Platelets? Smokers can have a polyclonal lymphocytosis. But need to see the whole cbc. ...Read more

Hb 10.3, platelets 105000, normoblasts=03/100wbcs. Rbcs morphology is normochromic. Normocytic majority of lymphocytes are atypical. Mononeuclear smal?

Hb 10.3, platelets 105000, normoblasts=03/100wbcs. Rbcs morphology is normochromic. Normocytic majority of lymphocytes are atypical. Mononeuclear smal?

We can't answer: Especially with the abnormal morphology of the lymphocytes, you need to speak either with the treating physician -- primary care or consulting hematologist -- or with a physician you trust. No one here can tell you what this means though it is of course very concerning. ...Read more

When is an osmotic fragility test indicated?

When is an osmotic fragility test indicated?

Her it is: Osmotic fragility measures red blood cell (rbc) resistance to hemolysis when exposed to a series of increasingly dilute saline solutions. The sooner hemolysis occurs, the greater the osmotic fragility of the cells. Purpose to aid diagnosis of hereditary spherocytosis to supplement a stained cell examination to detect morphologic RBC abnormalities. ...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

Is my anemia considered severe? 44yr female Hemoglobin-9.9, hematocrit-32.5, MVC-69fL, MHC-20.9, MCHC-30.4, RDW-19.1, RBC- normal, WBC- normal.

Is my anemia considered severe? 44yr female   Hemoglobin-9.9,  hematocrit-32.5, MVC-69fL, MHC-20.9, MCHC-30.4,  RDW-19.1,  RBC- normal, WBC- normal.

Wrong question: Please forgive my frankness. "A little bit anemic" is like being "a little big pregnant." Your anemia requires a workup. Being microcytic, and I presume new (not thalassemia), you've got iron deficiency until proved otherwise. Unless you're an ill-advised vegetarian, you're losing blood -- and until it's proved otherwise, you need to search for a cancer, ulcer, or hookworm. ...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 more

4yr old daughter with CBC levels- wbc11.6 rbc4.62 hemoglobin 12.6 mch-27.2 platelets 420 lymphocytes57.7 neutrophils33 basoph-1.0 abs lymphocytes6.68?

Normal values: I'm not sure what your question is, but all of these values are completely normal for a 4 y/o. White blood cell count (WBC) is normal as is the differential count which indicates different types of white blood cells present. Not anemic and red blood cells normal amount of hemoglobin (mch). Platelets in normal range so right number to clot blood and not too high which can indicate inflammation. ...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 more

Iron deficiency: the anemia is most consistent with iron deficiency. another cause could be thalassemia. the high WBC count and PMN leucocytosis may indicate inflammation or infection. the high platelet count can be seen in iron deficiency anemia and/or bleeding. Iron deficiency is common among women of menstrual age and who have had children. Speak with your doctor regarding further evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

My 19 months old daughter her RBC count 5.6(4-5.2) MCV 68(70-85) rdw, RBC 19.8(12-16) neutrophils 18(24-60) lymphocytes 75(31-65) + abnormal RBC morph?

Thought it was 4 u: I thought you had posted these numbers for yourself, but its for your toddler. Same answer though - possible iron deficiency, which is mild since the number of red cells is normal, and possibly a viral infection. A blood specialist can tell a lot by looking at the slide, but all the above could be due to any viral infection. Your pediatrician or their nurse can give you more information - ask them. ...Read more

Can iron deficiency start from the blood and not stores, in my blood works HGB, RBC fine every time only iron was always low, how???

Can iron deficiency start from the blood and not stores, in my blood works  HGB, RBC fine every time only iron was always low, how???

Of course: Iron deficiency is present and you can feel crummy long before you become anemic. Now, why are you iron deficient? I hope you are not a non-supplementing vegetarian. If so, please reconsider. Your physician will check you for possible sources of blood loss. If you have some other illness that might make your iron low, such as arthritis, this may explain it. ...Read more

Splenic infarct due to blood clot for unknown reason. Rbc hemoglobin hematocrit absolute immat. Granulocytes platelets all still elevated. Normal?

No not normal: You are lucky that you developed blood clot in a non essential organ. If this were your heart or brain where blood clot formed or travelled, it could have been life-threatening or at least severe impairment would have resulted. See a blood specialist, hematologist, for an opinion whether you should be on anticoagulation. ...Read more
