The most common problem is storage artefact (Fig. 20). This occurs when blood has been at room temperature for a day or more before reaching the laboratory.

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. Cytoplasmic inclusions may be present as an inherited or acquired abnormality. The commonest such abnormality is a small, pale, blue–grey inclusion which occurs both during pregnancy and in infection and inflammation and is known as a Döhle body (Fig.

Severe infection or haemorrhagic shock). Assessing lymphocyte morphology Congenital abnormalities of lymphocytes are rare. Most abnormalities of lymphocyte morphology are caused by viral infections. Less often, increased numbers of lymphocytes showing a variable degree of morphological abnormality are indicative of a neoplastic process, either a lymphoid leukaemia or a lymphoma (see Chapter 4). The most striking reactive changes in lymphocyte morphology are seen in infectious mononucleosis, an illness caused by an acute infection by the Epstein–Barr (EB) virus.
