Fig. 17.61

Large cell immunoblastic lymphoma. The mass is composed of large atypical cells with irregularly clefted and indented nuclei and very prominent nucleoli. There is irregular thickening of the nuclear membranes with a very fine granular chromatin pattern with irregular areas of parachromatin clearing. The nucleoli are large and typically single and centrally located, but multiple and irregular forms are present. Mitoses are numerous, as well as a moderate number of tangible-body macrophages. Bar = 10 microns.*)
