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
Yes: The more important number is what is called the absolute monocyte count, which is derived by multiplying your WBC count by the percentage of monocytes (i.e. In your case 3.68 times 20% which equals about 0.73). Your absolute monocyte count is normal. When greater than 1.5, it could represent a problem. ...Read more
What are the causes / implications of eosinophil cells found in biopsy of the pericardium as a result of an effusion. 1 liter of blood was drained?

Does stress can be caused of immature granulocyte appear in the blood work? And if the number of percentage immature granulocyte is 0.1% is that ok?
