Thank you for your query,
The stool routine examination is suggestive of infection of the gut may be gastroenteritis mostly due to a bacteria.
The increase in the epithelial cell count is not significant.
But this report should be interpreted with her clinical findings of having any loose motins and to be correlated by her Pediatrician.
Hope I have answered your query.
