A stress leukogram
(high white blood cell and heterophil count) was found in all nestlings, suggesting stress induced by capture and restraint.
For these, body weight loss, organ weight alteration and leukogram
Laboratory findings included anemia (hemocrit 34%), a normal leukogram
(leukocytes 9,100 cells/[micro]L, 2% band neutrophils), mild hypokalemia, hypoalbuminemia, hyperglycemia, increased serum alkaline phosphatase level, erythrocyte sedimentation rate of 79, and hypergammaglobulinemia.
, proteinogram, enzymogram (alkaline phosphatase ALP, gammaglutamyl transferase GGT, aspartate aminotransferase AST) and iron, glucose, bilirubin and prothrombin time were determined by conventional laboratory techniques.
For patients who had at least one hemorrhage and either dehydration or hemoconcentration, a leukogram
, platelet count, and hematocrit were performed.
Results of a complete blood cell count revealed a marked inflammatory leukogram
, and cytologic examination of a crop swab sample identified gram-negative bacilli and occasional yeast organisms.
Differential diagnoses for the abnormal findings on the CBC were a stress leukogram
and a mild inflammatory response.
30) In waterfowl, the response to stress and inflammation is initial leukopenia followed by a stress leukogram
(ie, leukocytosis, with heterophilia and lymphopenia resulting in an increased H : L ratio).
Clinical Findings--Abnormalities detected via clinicopathologic analyses included mild leukocytosis, heterophilia, and lymphopenia consistent with a stress leukogram
Meloxicam and doxycycline therapies were continued, but the antifungal therapy was discontinued based on the absence of compatible signs of fungal infection on coelioscopy, a normal leukogram
, and stable antibody titers.
and serum globulin values in two dogs with systemic Xylohypha bantiana infection.
indicated a mild left shift and evidence of chronic inflammation.
