Other hematopathologists have told me that they've rarely seen Auer
rod-like structures in lymphocytes, but I do not think that they
published their findings.

Q1. Anybody doing/done apoptosis work on activated lymphs in
mononucleosis or other acute viral infections.
Q2. For the morphologists - has anybody seen "Auer rod like" bodies in
lymphs from a NHL.
Romanowsky staining is exactly like Auer rods but they are rhomboid in
shape. They are not an artefact and show in successive samples days
I've seen plenty of crystals in LPD's but all "transparent" and not
pinkish-blue as these are.
Nobody here has seen them before either.
