Elliptocytes (Figure 3--Slide G) have elliptical shape and may reflect inherited defect (hereditary elliptocytosis).
HPP is characterized by erythrocyte poikilocytosis and fragmentation, erythrocyte budding, spherocytes, triangulocytes, micropoikilocytosis, microspherocytosis, and occasional elliptocytes, which together result in a pattern reminiscent of thermal injury.
