Order Name:
Cell Count & Differential (Synovial fluid)

 
 
Clinical Information:
Synovial fluid may be present in increased volumes and/or may contain increased numbers of normal and/or abnormal cells in a variety of disease states.
 
Interpretation:
Trauma and hemorrhage may result in increased red and white cells; red cells predominate. White blood cells are increased in inflammatory and infectious processes:
  • Neutrophils predominate in bacterial infections
  • Lymphocytes predominate in viral infections
  • Macrophages may be increased in inflammatory and infectious processes
  • Eosinophils may be increased in parasitic or fungal infections
