Question: Flow Cytometry Results

 emaisy - Mon Dec 11, 2006 4:06 pm

Hello, I recently received the bone marrow lab results of my 51 yr deceased mothers. She had told us that they came back normal but I would like to have another opinion because they look anything but normal. She was diagnoised with Hodgkins Disease in 2002 and went into remission in late 02. She also suffered from PPH. Here are the findings of the labs I received from the hospital.
Specimen type-Bone Marrow
CD19 (B Cell)%-26
CD20 (B Cell)%-26.0
Surface Immunoglobulin%-28.0
CD2 (T Cell)%-69
CD3 (T Cell)%-61.0
CD4/CD3 (T Help)%- 26.0
CD8/CD3 (T Sup)%-35.0
CD5 (T Cell, CLL Cell)%-35.0
CD23 (B Cell Subset)- 4
CD10 (Common All Antigen)-0.0
CD13 (Monocyte, Granulocyte)- 25% of the CD45 faint region, 12% coexpress HLADR
HLA-DR-42% of the faint CD45 faint region, 12%coexpress CD13
CD16/CD56 (Natural Killer Cell)-16% of the lymphocytes express CD56 and/or CD16 and lack CD3
CD38 (Plasma cell, Active T Cell)-1.6% of the leukocytes express CD38 brightly
CD56 (Natural Killer Cell)-0% of the leukocytes express CD56 brightly with CD38 (bright) coexpression

Please help if you can.

User avatar Hello,

I have checked with the doctor in charge of the flow cytometry lab in my hospital and she told me that the results do not show any abnormality.

You should ask your hematologist about other causes of increased leukocytic count such as viral infections etc.

Best regards,
