Eosinophils can show a variety of morphological abnormalities (Fig. 11) including hyper- and hypolobulation, reduced granulation and cytoplasmic vacuolation. g. in parasitic infection) and also in eosinophilic leukaemia so they are not useful in differential diagnosis. Basophils sometimes show reduced granulation but since this can occur as a laboratory artefact as well as during allergic reactions and in leukaemia and related disorders, its detection is not very helpful in diagnosis.

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. 5). Another common cytoplasmic abnormality, which is strongly suggestive of infection, is cytoplasmic vacuolation (Fig. 4). Assessing White Cells and Platelets 47 Fig. 1 Leucocytosis.

If an artefact is excluded then the detection of defectively granulated platelets is Assessing White Cells and Platelets 55 of diagnostic significance. It occurs as a rare congenital anomaly (the grey platelet syndrome), but usually it is consequent on a bone marrow disease such as one of the myeloproliferative or myelodysplastic disorders.
