LABORATORY REPORT - CYTOLOGY
Specimen received: EDTA blood
9BS00000SG Blood smear interpretation by pathologist Specimen
Total three slides received. Unstained blood smears x3 -> (s0-2) (labelled Bld Smr 19/6).

Clinical History
Chronic neutropenic and anaemia. Additional History on file.


Microscopic Examination
The erythrocyte density of the specimen appears moderately to markedly decreased. Polychromatophils are not observed. Erythrocyte morphology is otherwise unremarkable.
The leukocyte density of the specimen appears markedly decreased. Mature, segmented neutrophils are rare and are found mainly at the feathered edge of the smear. Mononcytes and small lymphocytes are similarly rare. Leukocyte morphology is unremarkable.
Platelet numbers appear markedly decreased. Platelets morphology is unremarkable.

Diagnosis
Peripheral blood, pancytopenia

Comments
Bone marrow evaluation, including core biopsy, is recommended if clinically warranted, as extramedullary causes of pancytopenia are few and uncommon. Bacterial sepsis, feline infectious peritonitis, and infection with Cytauxzoon felis may also be considered if consistent with this cats clinical presentation.

(FIV positive on test).
