Nice job on the cells!

  1. I enjoyed this case. I have seen micromegakaryocytes that presented a reporting challenge; some techs wanted to call them lymphocytes. A real eye-opener, that’s what attracts me to hematology cell analysis. Looking forward to more cases!

  2. Is there more history for this case? If this is CML, is there a BCR/ABL1 rearrangement? The cells shown don’t seem typical at all of CML in early forms of the disease. Is this case in blast transformation? Thanks for the case.

  3. It is indeed very interesting to see photos of strange cells or cases. Thank You for an interesting case. I hope, that many will join this in the future.
    Kind regards Margit Grome, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen.
