English term or phrase: WET MOUNTS
Hi, the following is regarding vaginal discharges:

Microscopic examination of saline WET MOUNTS will show a mixture of white blood cells, bacteria and other debris.

The vaginal pH is usually over 5, and motile, flagellated, tear-shaped organisms can be found on WET MOUNT.

The WET MOUNT of the discharge reveals clue cells with few leucocytes.

By the way, any ideas what these CLUE CELLS are?

Needless to say, your help is greatly appreciated!

preparación fresca, suspensión de la muestra en solución salina


Explanation:
A "wet mount" is just a specimen mixed with saline solution, spread on a slide, and examined under the microscope without further preparation. "Clue cells" are bacilli adhered to the apithelial cells (see below).

En las mujeres se puede establecer muchas veces un diagnóstico inmediato con una suspensión no teñida de la secreción vaginal en solución salina; la muestra se toma del fórnix posterior y se examina con el microscopio óptico ordinario. Los movimientos ondulantes de los flagelos y la movilidad notable de los microorganismos con forma oval se ven sin dificultad. Los cultivos son más sensibles que el examen directo. La tricomoniasis también se diagnostica muchas veces en la extensión de Papanicolaou.

A la coloración de Gram muestra la presencia de células vaginales recubiertas por abundantes bacilos Gram negativos o Gram variables, cortos, pleomórficos, que impiden ver los bordes, denominándose a estas células "clue cells" o células guía.

En la la preparación citológica con la tinción de Papanicolau. Se observan estos parásitos de forma alargada, ya aisladamente ó agrupados en forma de corona parasitando las células epiteliales, tal como se muestra en las siguientes preparaciones hechas en mi consulta. En este caso, además de las tricomonas, se ve una infección por Gardnerellas vaginalis. ("clue cells" sobre las superficies celulares).

Examen de laminilla de solucion salina


Explanation:
You can make suspencions of cell (vaginal. faeces, etc) and examine them directly under the microscope to find parasites, etc. The samples need to be fresh (and often warm). This is often followed by other slides where the sample is dried (by a flame o sun) and stained (e.g. Giemsa or Gram). The specimen is then killed and fixed. Wet slides are often used to check for pathogens in vaginal swabs.


    I am a doctor and make dry/wet slides.
