Malignant melanoma of the oral cavity showing satellitism
Beside manual estimation of platelet count, blood film evaluation provides additional assessment of platelet size, shape, granulation, and analysis of phenomena such as aggregation or platelet satellitism
We excluded from the study, by examination for the blood smears, the pseudo-thrombopenic samples caused by platelet clumps, macrothrombocytes and platelet satellitism
It is worth mentioning that in the Russian conditions the systematic transformation of management institutions are not only doomed to overcoming the contradictions of monopolism, being fastened while decades, but also in the situation of longstanding permanent transformation for decades, are exposed to the strengthening influence of factors of <<social exhaustion>>, adapting capacity, living power, deformation of social and economic transformation, satellitism
, parasitism, final loss of the initial guidelines and criteria of reformation, suppressed positive results of which may be privatized by a small mafia, leaving the difficulties of transition for the majority of the population.
Isolates exhibited enhanced growth in the presence of pyridoxal (Figure) satellitism
with Staphylococcus aureus.
Biochemical tests most useful for identifying F tularensis include negative results for oxidase, satellitism
, and urease and positive reactions for catalase (weak) and [beta]-lactamase.
To prevent reporting of spurious thrombocytopenia when platelet clumps, giant platelets, or platelet satellitism
are present (HEM.
cautions such as platelet clumps, platelet fragments, giant platelets, platelet satellitism
, and bizarre platelets) were included in the study.
These include spurious macrocytosis generated by hyperglycemia (12,13) and spurious thrombocytopenia caused by platelet satellitism
in EDTA blood (14).
Bellow's novel captures the surreal semi-detached satellitism
of Ceausescu's 1970s Romania, of a communist state lazy in its ideology but energetic in its brutality, built on a past not obliterated but contemptuously disregarded, on the relegation of humane instinct to a matter of bureaucratic indifference.
Nutritionally-variant streptococci have been difficult to identify because they have unique culture requirements, they exhibit pleomorphic phenotypic features (1), and they demonstrate satellitism
around colonies of other bacteria.
A look at the peripheral blood smear is warranted to confirm the count and to rule out pseudothrombocytopenia due to platelet clumping or satellitism
