Table 1 Bronchoalveolar lavage cell counts and differentials at diagnosis

From: Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis in children on La Réunion Island: a new inherited disorder?

  Median IQR
Total cell count (ml-1)* 620,000 330,000 – 900,000
Differential (%)   
Macrophages 62.5 48 – 75
Neutrophils 27.5 21.5 – 55
Lymphocytes 5 4.5 – 13
  1. Data are presented as median and interquartiles range (IQR) for the 16 diagnostic broncho-alveolar lavages.
  2. *Total cell count is reported for 8 BAL as BALF cellularity was undetermined (described as “uncountable”) for the 8 others.
