lymphopenia, lymphopenic, lymphocytopenia
A reduction, relative or absolute, in the number of lymphocytes in circulating blood.
1. The presence of unusually large red cells in the blood.
2. A condition in which the erythrocytes are larger than normal; such as, in macrocytic anemia and some types of liver disease.
Macrocytosis is present in 1 to 4 percent of the adult population. The most common cause is alcoholism. Other causes include: nutritional deficiencies (B12 and folate), chemotherapy, drug side effects, haemolysis, liver dysfunction, myelodysplasia, as well as, hypothyroidism.
meniscocytosis (s) (noun)
, meniscocytoses (pl)
Sickle cell anemia: This meniscocytosis is a disease which is characterized by severe joint pain, thrombosis (coagulated blood or blood clots), and fever with chronic anemia (too few red blood cells) that results in lethargy (unusual lack of energy) and weakness.
Diminution in the number of monocytes in circulating blood.
The formation of monocytes.
Monocytes are transported to tissues such as the lung and liver, where they develop into macrophages.
A branch of biology dealing with the study of the shapes or the forms of cells; especially, their structures and functions.
A process that results in, or a condition that is characterized by, the abnormal or pathological death of cells.
A toxin that causes the death of cells.
normocytosis (s) (noun)
, normocytoses (pl)
A consistent condition of the blood with regard to its formed elements: In the hematology lab at the university, Paula and Martha learned to study normocytosis and to be able to compare it with the various conditions of non-normocytosis.
1. A glandular tumor that is chiefly composed of oncocytes, occurring most often in the salivary glands.
2. A tumor (as of the parotid gland) consisting chiefly or entirely of oncocytes.
3. A glandular tumour composed of large cells with cytoplasm that is granular and eosinophilic due to the presence of abundant mitochondria; occurs uncommonly in the kidney, salivary glands, and endocrine glands.
Extensive onocytic metaplasia.
Relating to phagocytosis of bacteria that are coated with opsonin.
The absence of any nucleated erythrocyte precursors in human blood; that is, the normal condition.
1. The pronounced reduction in the number of erythrocytes, all types of white blood cells, and the blood platelets in the circulating blood.
2. A condition in which the blood shows a relative deficiency of all three cellular components (erythrocytes, leucocytes, and platelets).
A cross reference of word units that are related, directly or indirectly, to "cell, cells, cell nucleus":
