More On Sputum Sample - Charcot-Leyden Like Structures
I did a search on the internet as to what this exactly meant. This is what I found out.
“Charcot-Leyden crystals are by-products of the breakdown of certain human white blood cells as a result of their destruction by certain parasites such as Entamoeba Histolytica. Their recovery in fecal samples thus indicates the presence of certain parasites.”
Although the undernoted micrograph is from my sputum sample, I’m pretty sure that charcot-leyden like structures were also found in my stool too. (The analyst who did my tests does not definitively say this but it IS questioned in the micrograph showing a “?” beside it) Here is the one taken from my sputum sample which questions ‘?’ charcot-leyden like structures.
The Green text contained within the above micrograph reads as follows:
“**Nematode or nematode-like organisms found. Active.
**Limited-to-significant motility in culture only.
**Thin arrows: Gel-like ‘trail’? ‘protective’ layer secretion?
**Thick: Charcot-Leyden-like structures?”
Below are a couple of other micrographs from my samples which I believe questions whether charcot-leyden like structures were present in my samples. The first micrograph I’m pretty sure was taken from my stool sample.
The following micrograph I’m pretty sure was from either sputum or urine, although I’m inclined to think it was taken from my urine sample, although I’m not exacly sure.
