myelocyte is a young cell of the granulocytic series, occurring normally in bone marrow (can be found in circulating blood when caused by certain diseases).

Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is an uncommon type of cancer of the bone marrow — the spongy tissue inside bones where blood cells are made. CML causes an increased number of white blood cells in the blood.

The term “chronic” in chronic myelogenous leukemia indicates that this cancer tends to progress more slowly than acute forms of leukemia. The term “myelogenous” (my-uh-LOHJ-uh-nus) in chronic myelogenous leukemia refers to the type of cells affected by this cancer.

Chronic myelogenous leukemia can also be called chronic myeloid leukemia and chronic granulocytic leukemia. It typically affects older adults and rarely occurs in children, though it can occur at any age.

Transudate Vs Exudate
transudate and exudate

g/dL↔g/L 1 g/dL = 10 g/L.

The signs and symptoms of leptospirosis usually appear suddenly, about 5 to 14 days after infection. However, the incubation period can range from 2 to 30 days, according to the CDC.

Mild leptospirosis

Signs and symptoms of mild leptospirosis include:

  • a fever and chills
  • coughing
  • diarrhea, vomiting, or both
  • headache
  • muscle pain, particularly lower back and calves
  • a rash
  • red and irritated eyes
  • jaundice.

Severe leptospirosis

Signs and symptoms of severe leptospirosis will appear a few days after mild leptospirosis symptoms have disappeared.

Symptoms depend on which vital organs are involved. It can lead to kidney or liver failure, respiratory distress, and meningitis. These can be fatal.

The heart, liver, and kidneys

If leptospirosis affects the heart, liver, and kidneys, the person will experience:

  • fatigue
  • irregular, often fast, heartbeat
  • muscle pains
  • nausea
  • nosebleeds
  • pain in the chest
  • panting
  • poor appetite

  • jaundice, seen in a yellowing of the whites of the eyes, tongue, and skin

Without treatment, this can lead to life-threatening kidney failure.

The brain

If it affects the brain or spinal cord, meningitis, encephalitis, or both may develop.

Meningitis is an infection of the membrane covering the brain and spinal cord, while encephalitis refers to infection of brain tissue. Both conditions have similar signs and symptoms.

These may include:

Untreated meningitis or encephalitis can result in serious brain damage, and it may be life-threatening.

The lungs

If it affects the lungs, the person cannot breathe.

Signs and symptoms include:

  • high fever
  • panting
  • coughing up blood

In severe cases, there may be so much blood that the person suffocates.
