Early diagnosis of perinatal asphyxia by nucleated red blood cell
count: a case-control study.
9,13) Apart from hypoxia, nucleated red blood cells
in fetal circulation can increase from infection; maternal diabetes mellitus; fetal anemia, as in erythroblastosis fetalis; and acute blood loss.
A micro fluidics approach for the isolation of nucleated red blood cells
(NRBCs) from the peripheral blood of pregnant women.
Pediatrician Abd ElBaky of the National Research Centre, in Cairo, and colleagues there and at Cairo University, Egypt, have found that obesity and passive smoking are risk factors for elevated umbilical cord neonatal immature, or nucleated red blood cells
Q Basic hematology has the lab correct the WBC when there are six or more nucleated red blood cells
(nRBCs) when doing a manual differential.
Especially during the second wave, more numerous nucleated red blood cells
with decreased nuclear-to-cytoplasmic ratio were noted in the peripheral blood smears.
The hematopoietic cells are comprised of nucleated red blood cells
, lymphocytes, monocytes, and neutrophils.
Nucleated red blood cells
were present at a rate of 32 per 100 white blood cells and revealed irregular nuclear contour and double nuclei (Figure 1).
The possibility of isolating fetal nucleated red blood cells
from maternal blood samples for use in antenatal diagnosis of fetal genetic or chromosomal abnormality has gained much attention in recent years (8, 9).
Review of the peripheral smear revealed notable red cell morphology (Figure 1) and 24 nucleated red blood cells
per 100 white blood cells, many of which were dysplastic.
The use of fetal cells, such as nucleated red blood cells
(NRBCs), has been attempted as a means of noninvasive prenatal diagnosis.
