Slide 3: Lymphocyte and a monocyte (one on the end with a bizzare-shaped nucleus), Lymphocytes vary in size such that the smallest appear to have just a rim of perinuclear cytoplasm to the largest which are almost the size of monocytes. Compare the monocyte with the large lymphocyte next to it. Note that the nucleus of the monocyte, in addition to its irregular shape, is also with less condensed chromatin and that the 2 medium-sized lymphocytes in this slide have some azurophilic granules. Giemsa stain.
