Hello Rekha and welcome to HCM
The positive finding in your patient is that of raised globulin.
Globulin is the fraction of plasma. All immunoglobulin- Ig A, G, M, D and E in the body fall in this category of proteins
. These immunoglobulins
are secreted by a type of cell called plasma cells.
The function of immunoglobulins is to protect the body from infections.
Normal globulin levels are between 2.3-3.5g/dl
The levels of globulins are increased when there is proliferation of plasma cells.
A bone marrow
aspiration will enable the pathologist to see if there is increase in percentage of plasma cells and if there any evidence of malignancy in them. This group of disorgers are called plasma cell dyscriasis.
Before going for an invasive procedure like bone marrow aspiration, you can go for serum protein electrophoresis
and urine protein electrophoresis
Thanks and take care
