Mystery cells case #16: Female infant with grey hair

This case presents a 1 ½ year old Asian female that came to the hospital with an infection and high fever. Her hair was of a gray color and her skin was pale and gray.

What can you see when you look at the cells? 

Thank you to the hospital in the Western United States for providing us with this quite unusual case!
