CSF analysis included physical properties, cytosis
, total protein concentration and Q Alb ratio (Q Alb = albumin in CSF (mg) / serum albumin (g) x 1000) indicating efficiency of the blood-CSF barrier.
Anisokaryosis and aniso cytosis
were moderate, and bi- and multinucleated cells were common (Fig 2).
There was no evidence of leucopenia or cytosis
. Absolute values for nucleated WBCs were unremarkable, including neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils.
Syndrome of headache with neurological deficits and CSF lympho- cytosis
: a spreading depression mechanism?
Testing of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) revealed inflammatory features (cytosis
, 63 cells/[micro]L, and protein concentration 68 mg/dL).
Furthermore, when a patient with a previous diagnosis of malignancy developed fever and hyperferritinemia, hemophagocytic lymphohistio cytosis
should be considered in the differential diagnosis.
Localized gastric crystal-storing histio cytosis

1 Acute febrile illness with Crack/ 2 nausea, vomiting, fatigue, Smoke headache, and myalgias 2 Acute febrile illness with Crack/ 1 nausea, vomiting, pharyngitis, Smoke fatigue, headache, and myalgias 3 Possible peritonsillar abscess Unknown 1 with fever, pharyngitis, fatigue, headache, and myalgias 4 Acute febrile illness with Powder/ 2 myalgias Snort 5 Vomiting and diarrhea with Crack/ 0 headache, chills, and back Smoke pain 6 Pharyngitis, dyspnea, sore Powder/ 0 gums and teeth, swollen Snort glands 7 Fever, mouth sores, Crack/ 0 lymphadenitis Smoke 8 Fever, body aches Powder/ 0 Smoke 9 Pharyngitis with painful gums Powder/ 0 and lesions on ears, arms, Snort legs, and trunk 10 Arm and neck mass with fever Powder/ 1 and cough.
Other cancers were Burkett's lymphoma (n = 1), Wilm's tumor (n = 4), Ewing's sarcoma (n = 3), Hodgkin's lymphoma (n = 1), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (n = 5), rhabdomyosarcoma (n = 3), histiocytosis (n = 1), renal cell cytosis
(n = 1), neuroblastoma (n = 5), primitive neuro ectodermal tumor of chest and lung (PNET, n = 2), meduloblastoma (n = 4), astrocytoma (n = 3), and ependymoma (n = 1).
Mrs Howell contracted cytosis
from a parrot while she was at the RSPCA centre and was forced to stop working there as the illness developed in her lungs.
Patients with odontogenic infections typically report a recent onset of tenderness and swelling of the face and neck, which are usually accompanied y fever and process cytosis
. MRI is the most sensitive modality for identifying and evaluating facial-space inflammatory processes caused by odontogenic infections.
Tracheobronchial lymph nodes and palatine tonsils had severe sinus histio cytosis
and lymphocytolysis and moderate infiltration by neutrophils.
