Howell–Jolly bodies (Fig. 28) are larger, round, densely staining inclusions, usually towards one edge of the cell. They represent a nuclear fragment that was not extruded when the red cell left the bone marrow. Usually any Howell– Jolly bodies left in red cells as they leave the bone marrow are removed by the spleen.

48 Chapter 3 Neutrophils may have congenital or acquired abnormalities of nuclear lobulation. An increase in band forms and less lobulated neutrophils in relation to more mature, well-lobulated neutrophils is known as a left shift (Fig. 4). This term is also used when neutrophil precursors are present in the blood. Neutrophils Fig. 4 Toxic granulation, vacuolation and left shift (the two white cells are band forms).

23) as a cause of a falsely low count. Assessing neutrophil morphology Neutrophils may show increased (Fig. 4) or decreased (see Fig. 13) granulation. Increased granulation is usually a reaction to infection or inflammation and is therefore referred to as toxic granulation. However, it does also occur as a normal phenomenon, during pregnancy.
