5 October 2016 (Wednesday) - NEQAS Morphology Return

The NEQAS blood film morphology report 1606 BF came through today;

  • 1606 BF1 was a case of MDS/MPN in transformation with target cells were due to chronic liver disease and the patient was also a transfusion dependant sickle cell-beta 0 thalassaemia patient
  • BF2 was a case of G6PD deficient in haemolytic crisis.

Well, I’m happy I spotted the salient features. However as for a diagnosis… those cases are rather obscure. Did *anyone* come up with that particular combination of the highly unlikely given the very limited information we are given?
