cll and C.N.T

my husband was taken into hospital at the weekend with a temp of 39.4, he has responded well to intravenous antibiotics, but we are a little concerned to hear a "new" aspect of cll mentioned a high elevation of C.N.T in one of his blood tests. don't know what this is does anybody else?? the explanation given to my husband was in jargan speak...... so we are somewhat bewildered.he does have p17 deletion he has recently had an ivig infusion.

  • Are you certain it is C.N.T.? That usually refers to 'count'.... like 'platelet cnt' or PT/CNT. A search of 3 medical lexicons also shows nothing with C.N.T. and blood test... but abbreviations vary considerably from country to country...
