potential diagnosis is
Ms. Carter is a cancer patient admitted to the emergency room with a high fever (103 degrees) and severe fatigue. She is currently on chemotherapy for her cancer that was diagnosed as stage 2 breast cancer. The physician orders a complete blood count (CBC) as well as a culture to determine the cause of her infection. Her CBC results show a hemoglobin of 10 g/dl and a hematocrit of 28%. Her iron and folic acids levels are within normal range. Her culture has not returned from the lab yet.
What do you think her potential diagnosis is and why?
