He had lost 10 pounds in the past month, felt weak and was bed ridden. The patient was dizziness on standing. His Temp was 36.8 degrees.

Hematology Case # 1 Questions Interpret the laboratory and morphologic findings? List 4 possible underlying diseases? What additional tests would you do?
Hematology Case # 1 Question 1 Interpret the laboratory and morphologic findings? –Macrocytic anemia with hypersegmented neutrophils, nucleated RBC, borderline neutropenia and stomatocytosis
List 4 possible underlying diseases? alcohol intake. liver disease abnormal DNA synthesis (megaloblastic) due to B12 or folate deficiency Drugs such as methotrexate Hypothyroidism Myelodysplastic syndrome
Hematology Case # 1 What additional tests would you do? Serum B12 Serum and red cell Folic acid Liver Enzymes –Gamma GT –ALT TSH Bone Marrow
Hematology Case # 2 History –21 year old female who is a University student noted over the past week increasing fatigue, sore throat, headaches, and fever. Physical Exam –She has erythematous throat and tonsils, Swollen cervical lymph nodes and hepatosplenomegaly
