Abstract
We experienced a case in which yeasts in blood sample from a patient with cervical cancer with hepatic metastasis and multiple intraperitoneal cysts interfered with platelet morphology flag in automated blood analyzer. The peripheral blood smear was performed to confirm the flag and revealed intracellular and extracellular yeasts, which were subsequently identified as Candida parapsilosis by blood culture.
간으로 전이된 자궁경부암과 복막강 내 다낭종을 가진 환자의 혈액검사 결과 자동혈액분석기에서 혈소판 모양 이상 소 견을 보였다. 이상소견의 확인을 위해 말초혈액도말검사를 실시한 결과, 세포 내와 세포 외에서 다수의 효모균이 발견되 었고 혈액배양검사에서 Candida parapsilosis로 동정된 1례를 경험하였기에 보고하는 바이다.
