Her white blood cell count was 13.640/[mm.sup.3], with 76% polymorphonuclear
leukocytes and 18% lymphocytes.
Considering these results with the changes in blood leukocytes, in which was an increase in total leukocyte and in subpopulation of polymorphonuclear
leucocytes when compared to the baseline count, it confirms that both concentration of adjuvant effectively established experimental model, which presented different ways of development of adjuvant-induced arthritis (Figure 3).
Immune complex deposition in small vessels leads to complement fixation and polymorphonuclear
The patients with aseptic meningitis may present with a predominance of polymorphonuclear
leukocytes in the CSF during the first 24 hours of illness, thus making difficult to distinguish aseptic meningitis from bacterial meningitis.
Other laboratory findings included hemoglobin, 7.6 g/dL; white cell count, 10,360/[mm.sup.3] (polymorphonuclear
leukocyte count of 9,220/[mm.sup.3]; lymphocyte count of 932/[mm.sup.3]); and platelet count, 356,000/[mm.sup.3].
Histopathology of orbital myositis, also known as "idiopathic inflammatory orbital syndrome", reveals mixed inflammation consisting of fibrosis in various degrees, plasma cells, lymphocytes, macrophages, and polymorphonuclear
The percentage of asthmatic children with [RV.sup.+] who had increased polymorphonuclear
leucocytes was significantly higher than that in asthmatic children with [RV.sup.-] (92.1% and 76.2% versus 69.2% and 59.6%; P < 0.01 and P < 0.05, resp.; Table 2; Figure 1).
Meyer et al., "Resistance of Capnocytophaga canimorsus to killing by human complement and polymorphonuclear
leukocytes," Infection and Immunity, vol.
Right, Lung cells with intraalveolar exudate containing macrophages and polymorphonuclear
leukocytes after infection with Legionella pneumophila, the causative agent of Legionnaires' disease.
It dropped as low as 15,000 on day 6 but is now 25,000, with 23,000 polymorphonuclear
leukocytes (10% band forms).
It uses mainly clinical findings and laboratory values (i.e., migration of pain, anorexia, nausea and/or vomiting, right lower quadrant tenderness, rebound, elevation of temperature [greater than or equal to]37.3[degrees]C, leukocytosis [greater than or equal to]10x[10.sup.3]/[mm.sup.3], and polymorphonuclear
neutrophilia [greater than or equal to]75%) to assess the presence of AA (3) (Table 1).
