Unformatted text preview: = 121.6 macrocytosis. 2.22 Step 3: MCHC = 8.5 x 100 = 31.5 normochromic. 27 Step 4: RDW increased aniocytosis Step 5: The patient is anemic but the morphology report does not include polychromasia. Using the report, I calculated the corrected reticulocyte count getting 1.08%, but in order for it to compensate anemia it must be at least 3% normal. Therefore, this patients CRC is inadequate to compensate for the anemia. CRC = 1.8% x 27% = 1.08% 45% Step 6: Hypersegmentation of neutrophils, moderate aniocytosis (correlates to the increased RDW count), moderate poikilocytosis, macrocytes, macroovalocytes, few dacryocytes. MCH = 8.5 x 10 = 38.3 (Increased because of the large cells = macrocytosis) 2.22...
