In a microbio class of 12 students, we were doing skin-pricks of our fingers with mini-lancets and viewing Wright’s-stained droplets of our own blood under the microscope with the intention of finding and identifying several types of white blood cell.
I had ONE measly lymphocyte on the entire slide, while every other student had dozens of various WBCs. The instructor scanned the slide herself and made the statement that she had never seen that in her ~5 years of teaching this class or her time in the lab.
I have had blood tests that indicated normal white blood cell counts and seem to have great resistance to skin infections.
Chalking this up to a fluke, but has anyone else in medicine, nursing, or science here done a similar lab class activity with a similar result either pre-drug or post-drug?
