Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX Your haematocrit is normal, which is three times of your hemoglobin. So your probable hemoglobin is 14, which is absolutely normal.
Your WBC count is raised(normal range is 4000-0000)
Neutrophils 30%, lymphocytes 29%---Normal
Atpical lymphocytes 21% These cells are seen in collagen diseases and other autoimmune disorders, malignant disease, drug reactions, and infectious mononucleosis, as well as other bacterial and viral infections
Monocytes 20% high---High , means infection.
no beta- hemolytic colonies found on blood agar plate from pts throat swab---No streptococci bacterias seen in culture.
