(2) Nucleated RBC-Not Found.
This means?  Plz answer me madam.it's my friend problem. His name kalyan ghosh.age 25 year.

Answer
Hello:

I apologize for the delay in responding to your query.

This two types of cells mentioned by you - atypical WBC and nucleated RBC are a type of abnormal cells, seen in presence of infection, viral diseases and some types of blood cancer, high turnover of red blood cells.

It is good that your friends blood report lacks these cells. There is no reason to worry because of the mention of these cells as they should not be normally present in the circulating blood.

Hope this answers your question
