Thus, the monocytosis
and thrombocytopenia conditions were possibly due to the high parasitic intensities caused by Trichodina spp., I.
However, the mechanisms for AGE-induced monocytosis
are probably far from simple.
(20%) with ovalshaped, slightly irregular nuclei was present.
In the current study, hemato-biochemical analysis revealed mild normocytic normochromic regenerative anemia, normocytic hypochromic anemia and macrocytic-normochromic anemia, slightly elevated WBC count (in all cats) with mild basophilia and monocytosis
. In FHM, macrocytic-normochromic response of the hematopoietic system reflects the degree of the regenerative response projected to communicate the severity of the anemia (Kurtdede and Ural, 2004).
The most remarkable laboratory findings related with sandfly fever include leukopenia, lymphopenia, monocytosis
, thrombocytopenia, increased liver function tests and increased CK level (5, 6).
 There was a reciprocal monocytosis
at each low point of the neutrophil count in our patient, who responded to three courses of G-CSF but still experienced neutropaenic cycles; this has been described in the literature.
Lab test results revealed the following: white blood cell (WBC) count, 13,000/[mm.sup.3] with relative monocytosis
(14%); lymphocytosis (44%) with normal neutrophils and no bands; hemoglobin, 12 g/dL; hematocrit, 36/[mm.sup.3]; and platelets, 300,000/[mm.sup.3].
Myeloid-specific inactivation of p15Ink4b results in monocytosis
and predisposition to myeloid leukemia.
Our results suggest that leukocytosis after the RE occurs due to an increase in the neutrophilia and monocytosis
, once the plasma volume correction has shown that the rod neutrophils (young) and the lymphocytes were not increased when compared with the basal collection.
Laboratory tests revealed hyperbilirubinemia (total bilirubin 21.5 mg/dL; reference interval, <8.5 mg/dL), an agranulocytosis [absolute neutrophil count (ANC), (3) <0.04 X [10.sup.9] /L; reference interval, 5-21 X [10.sup.9]/L], eosinophilia (0.83 X [10.sup.9]/L; reference interval, <0.5 X [10.sup.9]/L), and monocytosis
(3.8 X [10.sup.9]/L; reference interval, <1.1 X [10.sup.9]/L).
has been reported to occur, although the present study showed that the majority of malaria patients had a low mean monocyte count.
can be seen in acute and chronic inflammations, immune mediated diseases, disorders of tissue damage, monocytic leukaemia and geriatric ages.
