Pediatrics/opinion on CBC


my 12 yr old underwt/underht daughter has Hb 6.8, platelet 3,14000 , eritrocyte-4.21 million/cmm ,total leucocyte count 6100 cu/mm , monocyte-7%, lymphocytes -53% ,neutrophil-31%, eosinophil-8% , , basophil-1% ESR-35 , Serrum ferritin - 6.44% ,MCV-63.5 , MCH-16.5, RDW-20.4

Just an opinion what she is suffering from. She used to have heavy periods lasting for 6/7 days for 6 to 7 months last year now it is somewhat stabilised. The test was carried out during a fever.

Hi, sambudha,

I have no idea what she is suffering from, for I only know she has a fever and what seems to be a normal CBC.  The CBC does not tell us what one has, only gives us clues that combined with the history and exam can be helpful.

Good luck, Dr. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
