segmented neutrophil

seg·ment·ed neu·tro·phil

a fully matured neutrophil that has at least two (and as many as five) distinct lobes in the nucleus and manifests active ameboid motion.
Synonym(s): mature neutrophil

segmented neutrophil

a neutrophil with a segmented nucleus. Segments are connected by thin nuclear membrane filaments.

seg·ment·ed neu·tro·phil

(seg-ment'ĕd nū'trō-fil)
A mature and fully functional polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) containing cytoplasmic granules (primary or azurophil and secondary or specific) and a lobulated chromatin-dense nucleus with no nucleolus.

Changes in absolute band (ABC) and segmented neutrophil counts (ASC) (109/L) in healthy dogs (Group C), dogs infected with Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Group 0) and infected dogs treated with: enrofloxacin (Group I); feverfew (Group II) and feverfew+enrofloxacin (Group III).
Between the modifications of the homeostasis, provoked by the physical stresses, we can detach the increase of numbers of leukocytes, mainly of the segmented neutrophil (pseudoneutrophilic).
Total white blood cell count (WBC), mean segmented neutrophil count (MSNC), total lymphocye count, total monocyte count, total eosinophil count, total basophil count, total erythrocyte count (EC), packed cell volume (PCV), and hemoglobin (Hb) concentration were estimated using a haematological analyser.
We analyzed the correlation of serum ALP activity (and isoenzyme pattern) with the total leukocyte count and segmented neutrophil count in 14 additional patients with leukocytosis (Table 1 of the online Data Supplement).
Outcomes measured included the duration of the illness, reduction of symptoms, and change in lymphocyte and segmented neutrophil counts in patients with either viral or bacterial infections.
2,10,11) It should also be noted that when it is uncertain whether a cell is a segmented neutrophil or a band, it is recommended that it be assigned to the former classification.
The presence of these thread-like filaments is the most significant feature of segmented neutrophils and is the basis for distinguishing a segmented neutrophil from a band.
We drew 10 peripheral blood cells for the package: RBC, platelet, band neutrophil, segmented neutrophil, normal and variant lymphocytes, two monocyte variations, eosinophil, and basophil.
05 level of significance showed that the increase in the proportion of degenerated neutrophils and the decrease in the proportion of segmented neutrophils were both statistically significant on day-2.
2] Our patient had normal segmented neutrophils but red blood cells showed anisopoikilocytosis with both macrocytes and microcytes.
