In leukocytes, alterations were neutrophilia, eosinophilia, lymphocytosis, regenerative shift to left, degenerative shift to left, toxic granules in neutrophils, shift to right, lymphopenia and neutopenia.
In present study, it was also found that degenerative shift to left in cattle and buffalo was always associated with zero percent animal survivability.
In present study, we found that degenerative shift to left was always associated with poor prognosis in bovines.
Caption: Figure 3: Brain MRI performed on the third day revealed (a) high signal intensity on DW image and (b, c) well-defined rounded cystic lesion on the T2-weighted and T1-weighted images involving in the right corona radiata and basal ganglia, compressing the right lateral ventricle with midline shift to left, suggestive of an early stage of brain abscess.
Caption: Figure 4: Noncontrast head CT performed on the 7th day demonstrates an acute hemorrhage in the right occipital lobe, with surrounding oedema and compressing the right lateral ventricle with midline shift to left.
Patient was then referred to department of radiodiagnosis for Non contrast computed tomography (NCCT) which showed a large well defined cystic SOL of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) density measuring approximately 6.9*5.8 cm noted in right parietal lobe in the Middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory causing mass effect in the form of midline shift to left and compression of lateral ventricles.
2: [A] MRI TiW axial [B] MRI TiW sagittal [C] CEMRI TiW axial [D] MRI T2W axial scan showing an intra axial well defined cystic SOL displaying CSF signal intensity with no post contrast enhancement and no perifocal edema noted in right middle cerebral artery territory measuring approximately 6.9*3.8 cm causing mass effect in the form of midline shift to left and compression of right lateral ventricles.
Haemogram revealed normal haemoglobin (14.8 g/dl), total erythrocyte count (5.55 millions/[mm.sup.3]), packed cell volume (45.5%), mean corpuscular volume (53.1 fl), mean corpuscular haemoglobin (21.5 pg), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (24.8 g/dl) and RDW (16.8%); leukocytosis (23700/[mm.sup.3]) with neutrophilia (70%) and shift to left; high platelet count (1400000/); normal serum creatinine (1.08 mg/ dl) and ALT (89.09 IU/l.).
However, leukocytosis (23700/[mm.sup.3]) with neutrophilia (70%) and shift to left appeared to be due to wound and infection (Greene, 1984).
