TLDR
The manual differential is key, along with correct enumeration of blasts and blast equivalents, immature granulocytes, basophils, and eosinophils and identifying dysplasia to identify myeloid malignancies, which should be performed with a BM examination and the appropriate ancillary studies.
Clinico-hematological profile of Chediak-Higashi syndrome: experience from a tertiary care center in south India.
TLDR
The diagnostic hallmark of Chediak-Higashi syndrome is the occurrence of giant inclusion bodies (granules) in the peripheral leukocyte and their bone marrow precursors.
Clinical course of patients with WASP gene mutations.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that WAS protein expression is a useful tool for predicting long-term prognosis for patients with WAS/XLT and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation should be considered, especially for WASP-negative patients, while the patients are young to improve prognosis.
KASABACH MERRITT SYNDROME: MANAGEMENT WITH INTERFERON
TLDR
A 14-month old female child was brought with a reddish lesion on the left scapular area noticed at birth, which suddenly increased in size since 3 days, suggestive of Kasabach Merritt Syndrome, and Interferon –alpha– 2b was used in a dosage of 3million IU/m2 /day subcutaneously.
The genetics of benign neutropenia.
TLDR
The recent success in mapping the gene that underlies benign neutropenia in African American populations is described and the possibility that this gene underlies the same effect observed in Yemenite Jews, Ethiopian Jews and Bedouins in Israel is considered.
Leukocyte adhesion deficiencies.
Clinical characteristics and outcomes of chédiak–Higashi syndrome: A nationwide survey of Japan
TLDR
Results of a nationwide survey performed to clarify clinical characteristics and outcomes of CHS patients in Japan are reported.
Leukocytosis: basics of clinical assessment.
TLDR
Primary bone marrow disorders should be suspected in patients who present with extremely elevated white blood cell counts or concurrent abnormalities in red blood cell or platelet counts, and weight loss, bleeding or bruising, liver, spleen or lymph node enlargement, and immunosuppression also increase suspicion for a marrow disorder.
