Case 95 – the beginning

Welcome to our new case!

This week we start in GP. We have a 59 year old gentleman who A&E have asked you to follow up as he was found to have a slight lymphocytosis on some bloods that were done following an attendance with diarrhoea, which turned out to be food poisoning from undercooked barbecue chicken.

The bloods were taken 2 weeks ago.

  • Hb 135
  • Plt 180
  • Wcc 22
  • Neuts 4
  • Lymph 15
