What Is The Result Of Cbc Wbc Elevated In Amniotic Infection
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
Intra-amniotic infection (formerly called chorioamnionitis) is infection of the chorion, amnion, amniotic fluid, placenta, or a combination. Infection increases risk of obstetric complications and problems in the fetus and neonate. Symptoms include fever, uterine tenderness, foul-smelling vaginal discharge, and ...Read more
What causes a high number/percentage of MID cells in CBC when the overall WBC is in the normal range? ESR is also high (50mm/hr) and slight anaemia.
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. The elevated sed rate represents some sort of inflammatory response to something--the slight anemia requires more information. Please visit with your physician to understand what is going on with you medically. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Inflammation: The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a nonspecific measure of inflammatory proteins in the blood causing the settling of erythrocytes slower. It also increases with age. It has to be done in view of something specific being followed or else an explanation may be missed. It follows the waxing and waning of diseases being followed as a response to treatments. ...Read more
What causes normal WBC in confirmed presence of infection? would localized infection NOT raise wbc?
Usually does not: Most infections do not change the white count out of the reference range. This is a "pop" idea that generates much confusion. ...Read more
Several things: The kidneys serve as a sieve and metabolic control system. If the kidneys are damaged, it is possible that proteins, casts, and blood cell components will be seen in the urine. This may be part of an infection or a more serious kidney damage. Further evaluation is recommended for this combination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Protien malnutrition: Albumen is an acute phase reactant and it is difficult to interpret well in the critically ill. That being said, very low albumen can indicate protein malnutrition, making it more difficult to heal wounds, makes drug delivery less reliable (some drugs bind to albumen for transport), make pulmonary edema harder to treat... The list is long. For that reason, we generally feed patients earlier now. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Need follow-up: An isolated reading of 10-20 WBC may not be worrisome, but it warrants repeating the test in 3-4 months. Be careful to collect the sample properly. You may consult this site for proper urine collection: http://a1.mayomedicallaboratories.com/webjc/attachments/46/e7dc0a4-urine-collection.pdf 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
What could be the cause of low lymphococytes with high rbc, high hemoglobin and high hematocrit? My pcp is re-testing in one-month. Thanks.
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?
May be normal: Eosinophils are normal constituents of the blood and could just be from the blood that was drained. I'm quite sure that a CBC (complete blood count) was done prior to the withdrawal of blood from the pericardium. It the eosinophil count was normal then you should be fine. As is many procedures like this the physician will redo some blood tests and most likely you will have another CBC done. ...Read more
Various factors: There are 3 red blood cell measurements that correlate with various types of anemia. They are mcv. Mch, and mchc. These factors help determine the cause of different types of anemia. The most common reason for the MCV to be low is with blood loss anemia (known as iron deficiency anemia). This can also occur with insufficient ingestion of iron or with disorders of hemoglobin like sickle cell. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does high neutrophils and low lymphocytes in a patient with gastroenteritis and pancreatitis indicate? Could this be a result of an autoimmune condition? On another occasion in the same patient, what about normal neutrophils but low lymphocytes prese
Neutrophils: Both conditions are acute inflammatory conditions and would cause this picture- high neutrophils and low lymphocytes. This is what is known as a left shift and is commonly seen. Although an autoimmune process may be an underlying cause this specific WBC reaction is not an indication of autoimmunity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High White Count: A high white count usually indicates that a patient has an infection. When your kidneys fail you are more susceptible to infection for a whole bunch of reasons. The consequence is not so much that your blood count is high, but that you likely have an undiagnosed infection and this needs to be investigated by your dialysis doctor/nephrologist or your primary care doctor. ...Read more
My blood work up shows "High Chlorides and Lymphocytes with low Neutrophils" what does this mean? Is this the indicator for the Rhumatoid Factor?
Lab work: No this is not a sign of RA. However, I don't know what the rest means as I deal with numbers not with arbitrary highs and lows. What is considered high and low "by the lab" may be considered normal by a doctor or not. We pay attention to the clinical condition with the numbers to consider its significance. There are some numbers reported by labs that have no meaning at all to us. ...Read more

Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
