Fig. 17.43

B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The majority of the lymphocytes are small with compact chromatin and a narrow rim of cytoplasm. The large cell with cytoplasmic granules is likely a benign promyelocyte released due to phthisis of normal marrow and indicates the leukemia is progressing to an accelerated phase, as suggested by the degree of anemia and thrombocytopenia.
