    Good morning. I am translating a hematology report and cannot seem to find the correct translations for some of the terms. Here's the context:

    SERIE BLANCA [White Blood Cells Series]

    NEUTRO [NEUTROPHILS]
    LINFO [LYMPHOCYTES]
    MONO [MONOCYTES]
    EO [EOSINOPHILS]
    BASO [BASOPHILS]
    CAYA [?????]
    LINFORE [?????]


    Anyone know what those last two are?

    Hola. "CAYA" = cayados ("band cells" o "band neutrophils" o "stab cells").
    En cuanto a "LINFORE", no tengo ni idea de a qué pueda referirse.
    Un saludo.

    Could this be a shortened form of either linfocitos reactivos (reactive lymphocytes) or the relative number of lymphocytes?

    Hola:

    Creo que los linfocitos reactivos que menciona Eric es una buena posibilidad, por acá se suele usar células de irritación o células de Türk.

    Saludos.

    Another (remote) possibility is: linfocitos T regulador, but I wouldn't expect to find that as part of a routine CBC.

    Devans,

    If you have the actual values/numbers for the various cells on the report, that might help to give it more context.

    lo confirmo, se trata de linfocitos reactivos (en algunos resultados escriben linfore para abreviar la frase), que sirven para guiar diagnósticos según su porcentaje (p ej hacia mononucleosis infecciosa)
