Blood Cell Identification - Graded

The term macrocyte is reserved for large cells without the significant polychromasia. The appearance of polychromasia is due to the retention of a small amount of RNA (ribonucleic acid) in the cells after release from the bone marrow.


polychromasia. Leukocytes: Increased in number with lymphocytosis; lymphocytes appear mature with slightly irregular nuclear features; reduced viability specimen (specimen received 3 days old).

Cells, Tissues & Organs: Methods of Study

The staining mechanism has been elucidated to include 3 fundamental processes ( see Ho robin, RW & Walter KJ Histochemistry 86:331-336, 1987): 1) orthochromasia (cellular components stained either pink/red due to eosin or blue due to basic dye component) , 2) polychromasia (layered staining with both ...


POLYCHROMASIA CAPSULARE (MULTICOLORED CAPSULE): REPORT OF THREE FAMILIES BY Elias I. Traboulsi MD, * Daniel Chung DO, AND John M. Koors MD ABSTRACT Purpose: To describe the familial occurrence of a peripheral ring of anterior lens capsule discoloration and iridescence in three families.

Anemia in Adults: A Contemporary Approach to Diagnosis

For example, substantial polychromasia (indicative of reticulocytosis) suggests hemolysis as the cause of macrocytosis, whereas round morphology of red blood cells, as opposed to oval macroc ytosis, suggests liver disease (target cells are also evid ent) or hypothyroidism. 12 CONCLUSIONS The ...

Marked anisocytosis, poikilocytosis and polychromasia were noted and the Inajority of the red blood cells were hypochromic and microcytic (fig. 1 ).


The peripheral blood film shows many parasites, polychromasia, anisocytosis, poikilocytosis, target cells, basophilic stippling and, in severe cases, Cabot's rings, Howel Jolly bodies, and nucleated red cells.
