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

Increase in monocyte: Monocytes are increased frequently after a viral infection or after some bone marrow insult--again usually viral, but can be associated with exposures or other type of illness.

Sir, My wbc report shows eosophilia what does it mean and the count is 12.6... all other rbc platelet count and hemoglobin are in normal limits?
Worms or allergy: The two common causes of elevated eosinophil count are worm infestations and allergies. It would be good idea to get your stool tested for ova and parasites to exclude worm infestation, as worms are common in India. Worm infestation can be treated readily with oral medication. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Repeat it.: Atypical lymphocytes can be caused by a viral illness. If you are worried about lymphoma/leukemia, ask to have a recheck of your blood counts to rule out lab error. I discovered a patient who was perfectly normal had his blood sample mixed up with a patient with leukemia. I told him I didn't believe it, but he had an anxious time waiting for the results of the next test. Humans make mistakes. ...Read more

What does an elevated rbc count of 5.93 and Hct of 52.7 indicate in 70 year old male? Only other CBC abnormality is absolute monocytes of 1003.
Polycythemia: Elevated red blood cell parameters are concerning for polycythemia. Polycythemia can be reactive to another condition in the body (like chronically low oxygen) or without other associated medical conditions (polycythemia vera). Absolute monocytosis may be related. It has been noted in scientific literature as also seen in polycythemia vera. ...Read more
Please explain S.Pneumoniae IGG serotypes and what a low count signifies in a middle aged adult. Also explain the Strep.Pneumo vaccine and its results?
Subclasses: Serotypes actually represent the different strains of S pneumococci with 23 of them being most common in causing human diseases. If you have not received any vaccination or had any infection, low antibody titers are not necessarily abnormal. The best way is to get immunized then check the titers again. Pneumococcal vaccine is intended to reduce the risk of systemic invasion by this germ. ...Read more
What is the relationship of hepatosplenic t-cell lymphoma and low lymphocyte levels in the blood?
What might be the cause of an abs. Neutrophil count of <500 (when all other bc counts are within normal ranges)? Is bone marrow biopsy the next step?
Can't say & resupply: Low red cell count is either from lack of production, early destruction, or loss (= bleeding). That part of question depends on your Dr's eval and testing. Reticulocytes are young (/"immature") red blood cells. When RBCs are needed, production in bone marrow ramps up and cells are released a little early, which can tell on CBC. ...Read more
