What Do High Metamyelocytes With Fever, Muscle Pain And Stomache Indicate?
We did not visit any malaria area recently.
I did blood tests on her today and her CRP came back 183 and she also presents with high metamyelocytes. Do you think I should be concerned about the high metamyelocytes?
Wait and see if it reduces on its own.
Thanks for posting your query.
Metamyelocyte's are not normal in blood counts. Sometimes it happens when there is infection or bleeding because of overproduction of bone marrow. If persisting it is abnormal you might need checked out by a hematologist. Do wait for the fever to subside and repeat the test after 7 days.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
