OBJECTIVES To characterize the number of granulocytes needed to count on peripheral smear to identify diagnostic anaplasmosis morulae. METHODS Retrospective case study where the peripheral smears of 14 confirmed cases of anaplasmosis were examined. The granulocytes were counted up to 100 and 200 until a morula was identified. The mean counts of three pathologists were calculated to determine the minimum number of granulocytes needed to count for identifying diagnostic morulae. RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
