Wright Smear Of Lesion Shows Neutrophils (Overview)

Wright's stain is a histologic stain that facilitates the differentiation of blood cell types. It is used primarily to stain peripheral blood smears and bone marrow aspirates which are examined under a light microscope. In cytogenetics it is used to stain chromosomes to facilitate diagnosis of syndromes and diseases. It is named for james homer wright, who devised the stain.

My smears show thick inflammatory exudates consisting of neutrophils with occasional macrophages and lympho, what does this mean?

Inflammation: First, where are these smears coming from...pap? Neutrophils are an indicator to the pathologist of acute inflammation and macrophages and lymphocytes are an indication of chronic inflammation. These findings are very non-specific, but likely indicate an infectious etiology present. ...Read more

Wondering about labs that show low wbc, low rbc, low neutrophils?

Wondering about labs that show low wbc, low rbc, low neutrophils?

Patients not Labs: Doctors treat patients not labs, and with good reason. 90% of diagnoses are made via medical history and physical examination (something not currently practical via the internet). Labs are used to confirm or rule out specific concerns. What your labs means, depends on your specifics. The results may be important or insignificant; you need to check with your doctor. ...Read more

Many causes.: It can be pretty worrisome if your child needs a bone marrow biopsy to check low blood counts. There are many reasons for low blood counts. Some, like a recent viral infection or a side effect of a medication, recover quickly. Some are more serious. The Mayo Clinic offers a good site; http://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/low-white-blood-cell-count/basics/definition/sym-200506 ...Read more

My blood work show WBC 5.7 and neutrophils 42 and lymphs 50....Is this normal..Thank u?

My blood work show WBC 5.7 and neutrophils 42 and lymphs 50....Is this normal..Thank u?

Probably normal: A WBC of 5700 (5.7 x 10 to the ninth/l) is within normal limits (4000-11000). If 42 and 50 represent percentages, they indicate a very minimally decreased absolute neutrophil count of 2394 (normal: 2500-7500) and a normal absolute lymphocyte count of 2850 (normal: 1500-3500). ...Read more

Went 2 ER for severe flank pain & fever. High WBC &high neutrophils. U.S shows right pyelonephritis of upper pole but urine negative for bacteria, how?

Went 2 ER for severe flank pain & fever. High WBC &high neutrophils. U.S shows right pyelonephritis of upper pole but urine negative for bacteria, how?

Obstructed?: Obstruction of the upper part of the ureter or within the kidney could do this. e.g. from a kidney stone or papillary necrosis. That is, the infected area is not draining, and so no bacteria or white blood cells in the urine. If so, it's quite serious. Or maybe infection with a bacteria not detected on routine urine culture, but that's very rare. Keep working closely with your doctors. ...Read more
