monocyte and reactive lymphocyte

monocyte :

  • 3-4x larger than a mature RBC
  • Lower nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio because of increased cytoplasm
  • Kidney shaped Indented Nucleus with mature chromatin (clumped)
  • Nucleoli are absent
  • Cytoplasm is abundant, gray to pale blue and with rare to no granules
  • vacuoles are commonly noted in cytoplasm.
reactive lymphocyte :

  • 2-4x larger than a mature RBC
  • Increased amount of light blue cytoplasm
  • Nucleoli usually absent
  • Cytoplasm is usually indented by surrounding RBCs
  • Granules are usually absent.

so in conclusion :

  • mono : cell is larger , lower N\C ratio , finer nuclear chromatin
  • reactive lamphocyte :cell is smaller , condensed chromatin ,higher N\C ratio
