27 April 2018 (Friday) - Lymph... Mono... ?

A rather interesting discussion in the Facebook “Hematology Interest group”:

My apologies if this is a silly question, but I was wondering if anyone had any tips for distinguishing between reactive lymphocytes and monocytes?

I have 7 images here, and colour coded the respective WBC with what I think it is on the images - but I'm still just not sure if it is right. I've searched online and also textbooks, but still struggle to be certain if it really is a reactive or just a monocyte (the cytoplasm colour and chromatin pattern generally looks the same to me).

If anyone could help (and confirm my guesses), that would be much appreciated!

An interesting article… I think most people would struggle with this topic…
