Megan visited the ER last night for suspected cellulitis, a diagnosis which quickly changed to fifth disease. This is what her labs say:


She was negative for RSV
Negative for Influenza A & B
Heart is normal in size (they x-rayed), there is bilateral interstitial peribronchial thickening consistent with bronchitis/mild interstitial pneumonia. No focal lung consolidations. No pleural effusions or pneumothorax. no acute bony abnormality. IMPRESSION: findings compatible with bronchitis/mild interestitial pneumonia

Urine culture (macroscopic): copacetic

negative for group A strep

BMP:
High for glucose (103, reference 70-99)
low for creatinine (0.3, reference 0.4-1.4)

CBC:
low for hct (32.8, reference 33-40)
high for MCHC (34.3, reference 31-34)
low for MPV (6.8, reference 7.7-10.7)
high for PMN% (79, reference 8-46)
low for LYM% (16, reference 44-89)
high for ABS PMN (10.6, reference 1.4-7.7)

The lymphocytes worry me. I am not overly concerned about the labs that are slightly off, but 16 when it should be between 44 and 89 just sounds bad. We're seeing her pedi at 9 this morning and see what they say. They are so great about easing our fears.
