Various morphological changes such as droplet cells, eliptical cells, macrocyte
and microcyte in erythrocyte of infected camel were also observed with the help of light microscope.
It possesses hypocholesteromic activity (Fujita et al., 1991), antigastric ulcer activity (Ito et al., 1993), blood glucose lowering effect (Aicheret et al., 1999), and macrocyte
clumping activity (Cheung et al., 1994).

I've learned things like the difference between a microcyte and a macrocyte
, something about the coagulation cascade, and what a chemistry analyzer does.
 Bunyaratvej et al also observed a high RDW in their study group and those cases with high RDW showed macrocytes
in the smear.
A FBC with a smear on admission revealed a hypochromic, microcytic anaemia (Hb 7.3 g/dL) with target cells, spherocytes, oval macrocytes
, poikilocytosis and Howel Jolly bodies.
Analysis of the pleural fluid showed WBCs 17424/cmm, RBCs 1728/cmm, neutrophils 95%, lymphocytes 3%, macrocytes
2%, albumin 1.2, amylase 816, glucose < 1, LDH 1559, pH 7.41, and protein 2.7.
The peripheral smear findings such as macrocytes
, macroovalocytes, cabot's ring, basophilic stippling, and hypersegmented neutrophils can help to get differential diagnosis of anemia due to deficiency of vitamin B12; that is megaloblastic anemia.
Schistocytes, anisocytes, macrocytes
, microcytes, ovalocytes, helmet, and tear drop cells were present on the peripheral blood smear.
The peripheral blood smear can show oval macrocytes
, immature megaloblastic nucleated red cells and hypersegmented neutrophils.
Peripheral blood film showed dimorphic blood showing anisocytosis and macrocytes
, right shifted neutrophils seen and Platelets were low on film.
