Part Description

LP19572-4   Lymphocytes.abnormal
The classification "abnormal lymphocyte" includes both variant lymphocytes (also known as atypical or reactive) and malignant lymphocytes (i.e., lymphoma cells). Lymphoma cells are sometimes difficult to distinguish from variant lymphocytes by microscopy alone. A few features that can help distinguish the two are the nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio, the shape of the nucleus, and cell heterogeneity. Variant lymphocytes have moderately abundant cytoplasm and oval nuclei with with notches or indentations and are heterogeneous in size and shape within a single smear. Lymphoma cells have less cytoplasm, nuclei that are round or oval with slight indentations and tend to have a more homogeneous appearance within a single smear.
