What does it mean for a blood smear to show moderate polychromasia and moderate Schistocytes? Google doesn't give a good picture. :) Thanks

What does it mean for a blood smear to show moderate polychromasia and moderate Schistocytes? Google doesn't give a good picture. :) Thanks

Polychromasia should prompt a search for causes of hemolysis. The pathologist may want to review this slide. Best wishes. ...Read more
