Hematologic Example 3

This is a routine form, but much more detailed and explicit than the previous examples. The leukocytes are subdivided into granulocytes and agranulocytes which are then further subdivided. Check that the differential white count adds to 100%.

Leukocytes Percent
Granulocytes Basophils 1
Neutrophils 57
Eosinophils 1
Granulocytes Subtotal: 59
Agranulocytes* Lymphocytes 39
Monocytes 2
Agranulocytes Subtotal: 41
Total: 100%

* The term "agranulocyte" will not be found in reports. We have used it here to differentiate the two different types of leukocytes.

    ______________________________

Peripheral:

Hemoglobin and hematocrit values were low. WBC and differential were normal. Sickle preparation was negative. Reticulocyte count was normal.

Smear:

RBCs were for the most part normocytic, normochromic with anisocytosis. Some of the cells were hypochromic with occasional target cells present. WBCs appear normal. Platelets are adequate.
