There have also been reports of neutropenia, monocytosis, eosinophilia and leucocytosis
. [7-13] Thrombocytopenia in particular is considered to be an important finding, could be encountered even in mild/uncomplicated disease and low platelet count is an important marker for diagnosis of malaria in febrile patients living in endemic area.
Laboratory findings indicate leucocytosis
and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR).
Sigmoid gangrene is seen in 6.1-93.4% of cases with sigmoid volvulus (SV).1,2 Although some clinical and laboratory findings such as melanotic stool, fever, leucocytosis
, abdominal guarding/rebound tenderness, hypotension/shock, somnolence and metabolic acidosis suggest the sigmoid gangrene, most of them generally fail in accurate diagnosis.3,4 Similarly, although some radiological studies including Doppler ultrasonography, angiography or scintigraphy demonstrate the vascular occlusion, they are generally inadequate in determining sigmoid gangrene.5 When considerations are suitable, endoscopy identifies mucosal viability.
According to doctors Rao is in "critically balanced state and is suffering from pre-existing Azotaemia and Leucocytosis
However the common laboratary findings seen in KD include anemia, neutrophilic leucocytosis
, and thrombocytosis.
Although the mean values of the laboratory parameters are within the normal range, we found that 34 (20%) of them had abnormal results; 12 of them had slightly elevated liver enzymes, 7 of them had leucocytosis
, 7 of them had slightly prolonged PT, 4 of them had leucocytosis
and elevated liver enzymes, 3 of them had thrombocytopenia and 1 of them had leukopenia.
The complete blood count (Hemoglobin: 9.4 gm%, total leucocytes count: 18,200/cumm blood, neutrophils: 58%, lymphocytes: 37%, eosionophils: 03%, monocytes: 02% and basophils: Nil) revealed leucocytosis
Laboratory investigations revealed leucocytosis
and C-reactive level elevation.
, neutrophilia, eosinopenia, and lymphopenia, along with high serum bilirubin concentration have also been reported in equine leptospirosis (Pinna et al., 2013).
Blood and serum chemistry demonstrated anaemia (haemoglobin 8.6 GM%), leucocytosis
(total leukocyte count 18000/[mm.sup.3]) and deranged renal function (serum creatinine 2.1 mg/dL), suggestive of systemic inflammatory response syndrome.
Investigations revelaed neutrophilic leucocytosis
, raised C-reactive protein and a retrocardiac opacity on chest radiographs.
Laboratory evaluation revealed severe anemia leucocytosis
with eosinophilia (Hb: 6.8 g/dl, leucocytes: 10,800/ul, platelets: 2,10,000/ul, differential count: neutrophils 74%, lymphocytes 30%, eosinophils 11%), hepatitis [bilirubin: 9.5 mg/dl, AST: 210 IU/l, ALT: 320 IU/l, alkaline phosphatase: 422 IU/l].
