For instance, myelofibrosis can be quickly diagnosed using this integrated manner using cytopenia(s) as criterium/criteria in combination with the detection of teardrop cells. Remote review of both the cell counter results and the morphological pre-classification by the digital microscope can be performed by a laboratorian using a computer screen, integrating both results.
[16] in their cases found rare to moderate numbers of teardrop cells, rare nucleated RBCs with moderately reduced to normal platelet counts, mild to moderate anemia, and normal to mild reduction in the leukocyte counts.
The red cell morphology showed anisocytosis, poikilocytosis with occasional teardrop cells, spherocytes, ovalocytes, and a few schistocytes.
Peripheral blood showed moderate macrocytosis with occasional microcytes, elliptocytes and occasional teardrop cells. No nucleated red blood cells (RBCs) were seen.
Notably, the presence of spherocytes (hemolysis), teardrop cells (myelofibrosis, bone marrow metastases), or sickle cells (sickle-cell anemia), as examples, give information beyond that of the standard indices.
We've eliminated "occ'l" when describing elliptocytes, target cells, burr cells, schistocytes, acanthocytes, and teardrop cells. These cell types should be present in significant numbers -- i.e., "few," "mod," or "many" -- or not reported at all.
