Lab notes on Myeloctye and WBC deterioration
Nov 17, 2002
For the first time my lab reports had a note saying several things I don't understand. First it states, Heloglobin result and indices have been corrected for lipemia. The next note says, Rare Melocyte seen on scanning. The last note says WBC deterioration noted on the blood smear. Are these significant or just "normal" for a long-term survivor?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Could be lab artifact, or might mean something significant. The first thing is to get the CBC redrawn and if the abnormality exits, talk with your doctor.
