Döhle Bodies

Döhle bodies are small, blue, irregular-staining patches of cytoplasm seen near the edge of the cell in granulocytes in certain conditions. Electron microscopic examination reveals that they are composed of aggregates of rough endoplasmic reticulum remaining from an earlier stage of development.
