whossayinYes I’m at a loss for this one too. Still can’t figure out how we’re expected to differentiate those based on this slide shown.
The only logical explanation that I can think of is that reactive lymphocytes may be seen in LYMPHOMAS as opposed to granulocytes which are seen in LEUKEMIAS
Such a shitty way to trick us, hah!+2019-07-08T16:27:48Z
henoch280reactive lymphocytes are seen in EBV infection. you would see lymphocytes in the slide not neutrophils FA2018 pg 165+32019-07-15T03:54:37Z
whossayinThat makes sense.. but was the question talking about EBV infections or hematological malignancies? Just a vague question I wasn’t really sure what exactly was it trying to teach us, I guess the reactive lymphocytosis just threw me off!
Anyways, thanks for the clarification buddy!+2019-07-16T15:34:28Z
ratadecalleThey way I thought about it was:
Granulocytes: multi lobed nucleus
Lymphocytes: single lobe +22019-07-28T15:47:35Z
hello@whossayin - it's not reactive lymphocytosis because there are no buzzword type symtoms of EBV in the Q stem. Also, reactive lymphocytes look way different. +2019-08-07T01:03:24Z
