In haematologically normal subjects, only small numbers of randomly distributed monocytes are present. Macrophages (Fig. 28) are identified as irregularly scattered, relatively large cells with a small nucleus and abundant cytoplasm. In thin sections, only the cytoplasm may be visible, the nucleus being out of the plane of the section. Phagocytosed debris may be prominent in the cytoplasm. Some are associated with erythroblasts (forming erythroblastic islands), plasma cells or lymphoid nodules.
