Transient headache and neurological deficit along with the presence of lymphocytes in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is defined as CSF lymphocytosis
Persistent polyclonal B cell lymphocytosis
(PPBL) is a rare and presumably nonmalignant lymphoproliferative disorder diagnosed predominantly in women [1, 2], although a few men have also been diagnosed with this condition [3-5].
Using initial response to treatment as an outcome, the "immunophenotypic status" of the MCL was the only independent factor associated with response to treatment (P = .05) but not with MIPI (P = .10), absolute lymphocytosis
(P = .63), or WBC counts (P = .55) (Table 3).
The haematological abnormalities that have been seen consistently associated with malaria include anaemia, thrombocytopenia and mild-to-moderate atypical lymphocytosis
. Infrequently disseminated intravascular coagulation has also been reported.
In leukocytes, alterations were neutrophilia, eosinophilia, lymphocytosis
, regenerative shift to left, degenerative shift to left, toxic granules in neutrophils, shift to right, lymphopenia and neutopenia.
We repeated GI endoscopies: upper GI endoscopy found a chronic duodenitis with villous atrophy and intraepithelial lymphocytosis
and lack of plasma cells (Figure 1).
The biochemical characteristics of CSF are very similar in these two infections; however, some authors have pointed out that CSF in cryptococcal meningitis usually reveals a mild increase in lymphocytes and that finding significant lymphocytosis
should raise the concern for a concomitant pathology .
However, monoclonal B-cell lymphocytosis
(MBL) in patients with autoimmune diseases has rarely been reported.
Blood tests showed lymphocytosis
Confirmed case: (a) by laboratorial criteria: isolation of Bordetella pertussis; (b) by epidemiological criteria: any suspected case which has had contact with a pertussis confirmed case by laboratory testing, between the beginning of the catarrhal period up to three weeks after onset of the disease paroxysmal period; (c) by clinical criteria: every suspected case of pertussis whose hemogram shows leukocytosis (over 20,000 leukocytes/m[m.sup.3]) and absolute lymphocytosis
(over 10,000 leukocytes/m[m.sup.3]) and negative or not performed culture; and absence of epidemiological linkage; and no confirmation of another etiology.
The CBC results revealed a marked leukocytosis (337 x [10.sup.3] cells/[micro]L; reference interval for mynahs (Gracula religiosa): 6-11 x [10.sup.3] cells/[micro]L) characterized by a marked lymphocytosis
(315 x [10.sup.3] cells/[micro]L) and a mild heterophilia (22 x [10.sup.3]/[micro]L).
