Why did she have these tests done please?
What are her symptoms?
I do not see you in the chat.
so first, the eosinophil count is of no concern whatsoever.
these are white blood cells of a particular type
that can sometimes indicate an allergy problem
but the elevation here is so slight that it means nothing
as to the Xray
I am not familiar with radiological abbreviations used in the UK
so my best guess is this
apical means 'top' of the lung
so on the left side the radiologist sees some tiny nodules and some increased density in the lung
this could represent pneumonia
but I believe the abbreviation PTB probably means 'primary TB', or tuberculosis
it is unlikely this is the case
and is more likely that this is a mild pneumonia or perhaps scarring from prior infections
but if I am correct she will need to follow with her primary care physician to get a TB skin test
if positive she will need to be treated for some months with antibiotics
but TB is usually easily controlled with the correct medication
I do not see you in the chat so will change this to a Q and A format.
