An image from a bone marrow smear showing a plasma cell seen in a patient with multiple myeloma (100X oil immersion). Note the perinuclear halo surrounding the nucleus, and abnormal cytoplasmic projections.
An image from a peripheral blood smear showing bacteria (intra- and extra-cellular) seen in a patient with bacterial septicemia (50X oil immersion). Four neutrophils with toxic vacuolation and ingested bacteria are also seen.
