Rouleaux formation can be an artifact if
Mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration
What describes cells as normochromatic or hypochromatic?
These poikilocytes 5-10 irregular blunt fingerlike projects that vary in width, length and surface distribution
These poikilocytes are seen in animals with altered
lipid metabolism (cats w/hepaticlipidosis or dogs w/liver disease)
These poikilocytes have multiple small delicate regularly shaped spines that are evenly distributed around the cell
This poikilocyte formation can be artificial, often seen with slow drying blood films or if EDTA tube was underfilled thus termed crenation.
renal disease, lymphosarcoma and rattle snake bites in dogs
