Excerpt: ...or eosinophile granules, mon onuclear, in three forms: (a) Ehrlich's myelocytes, medium size, nucleus central and pale, neutrophile granules; in leukemia and secondary anemia. (6) Cornil's myelocytes, larger than No. 3, nucleus eccentric and pale, granules neutrophile; in myelogenous leukemia. (c) Eosinophile myelocytes, like No. 4 but nuclei single; in myelogenous leukemia (granules may be excessive in size), malaria, myxedema. 6. Mast cells, mono-or polynuclear, contain large and small strongly basophile granules, metachromatic with many stains (thionin); in myelogenous leukemia. The behavior of these cells with various stains is important. 368 ANILIN STAINS. Anilin stains may be divided as follows (Ehrlich): 1. Basic stains, which unite as bases with the acid principles of cells (nucleinic acid); in the order of selective power, hematoxylin, methylene blue, thionin, etc. 2. Acid stains, which unite with basic principles in cells, as eosin, fuchsin, aurantia. 3. Neutral stains, usually mixtures of the two previous kinds, which show affinity for certain parts of cells, as artificial indigo (from propiolic acid) and the "triacid" stain.1 Classified according to the reaction of their granules leucocytes may be divided into: A. Basophile, including mast cells, lymphocytes and large mononuclear leucocytes. B. Neutrophile, polynuclear leucocytes, myelocytes. C. Acidophile, eosinophile, leucocytes and myelocytes. Variations in Number.--Excess of polynuclear cells is called leucocytosis with or without the word polynuclear prefixed; if more than one kind, mixed leucocytosis; excess of lymphocytes, lymphocytosis; of eosin cells, eosinophilia. Physiologically there is leucocytosis in the new-born, after ingestion of food and during...
