Retrieving of eosynophilae in a smear of a nose secretion
A NEW DIAGNOSTIC EXAMINATION!!!
The retrieving of eosynophilae in a smear of a nose secretion helps the diagnosis of allergic rhinitis, especially with children.
The indication of eosynophilae in a smear of a nose secretion directs to allergy and the overrate number of the neutrophilae indicates an infectious process.
The examination of eosynophilae in nasal secretion is part of the needed tests for a diagnostic confirmation of a recently diagnosed asthma before starting the treatment with inhalation steroids.
A secretion from the nose must be taken with a dry pad and then it’s smeared on two dry glasses which then are worked out as a blood smear. It’s compulsory the fast transportation of the material in a transport container (in order not to be erased) and the duly fixing followed by dying.
Right before the taking of the material, the nose mustn’t be treated with any nasal sprays, antihistamins and corticosteroid medicines.
