I choose Echinocyte and Howell-Jolly bodies to discuses
B.T. Constantino. 2015. “Reporting and grading of abnormal red blood cell morphology (Links to an external site.),” International Journal of Laboratory Hematology, 37:1-7 (OER)
For this assignment, write a brief research report (~150-400 words) describing one type of aberrant RBC morphology from textbook Table 10-8* and one type of inclusion from Table 10-10*. *(Equivalent content from 2nd edition: RBC morphology featured in table 8-12 & figure 8-7; RBC inclusions featured in table 8-14 & figure 8-11)
- Elaborate on cellular/molecular mechanisms that cause these abnormalities and the related clinical consequences or associated disease conditions.
- Comment briefly on the challenges of how RBC abnormalities are graded in a clinical laboratory, as considered in the Constantino article.
- At the end of your post, include a provocative, open ended question to which your classmates can respond.
- Be sure to cite all resources. APA format preferred but not required.
