Next bone marow reserves are shifted into the peripheral blood and finally marrow production is increased. Leukoerythroblastic reactions suggest possible extramedullary hemtopoiesis and is often secondary to metastatic cancer. In leukemoid reaction anemia and thrombocytopenia are usually not expected.

This premature release of not yet fully mature neutrophils is called a myeloid “left shift”. Left shift was accompanied by normoblasts but erythrocyte morphology was not compatible with hemolytic anemia and there were no blasts.

In leukoerythro-blastosis left shift is accompanied by RBCs [ 12 ]. MBP major basic protein released from the pifture granules coats the Schistosoma organism prior to antibody-complement independent killing.

A leukoerythroblastic reaction is similar to a leukomoid reaction with the addition of nucleated red blood cells.

Some may appear almost blast-like. Bone marrow leukoerytyroblastic is essential for differential diagnosis. Other viral causes of lymphocytosis include infectious lymphocytosis and HTLV-1 related transient lymphocytosis.
