9 September 2016 (Friday) - NEQAS Return
The most recent blood film NEQAS (1605BF and 1603PA) results became available today:
· 1605 BF1 was a case of megakaryoblastic transformation of primary myelofibrosis
· 1605 BF2 was haemoglobin E with beta thalassaemia that had recently been transfused showing a dual red cell population
· 1603 PA1 had P.falciparum gametocytes
· 1603 PA2 was negative
I think it’s fair to say I spotted all the salient features even if I didn’t arrive at a comprehensive diagnosis in the first one. Mind you I’m not sure that it is realistic to expect me to; the information given in these exercises isn’t quite as much as it might be.
