    I know everyone is totally hanging out at their computer this wonderful Saturday night so you can answer my question.

    Does a PMNL value of 78% mean anything? Like a sign of infection? I've been trying to find out online and I can't find anything.

    Thanks for the help (it's for a case study that I have to talk about on Monday)!

    Normal range of PMN (neutrophils) is 54-62%. A higher value would be an infection. Do you have any other WBC lab data to narrow down the type of infection? ie bacterial, fungal, parasite, etc. What signs & symptoms are there? Any other pertinent data?
