Throughout the oestrous cycle, the major cells observed are small and large nucleated epithelial cells, anucleated, keratinized epithelial cells and neutrophils.
Pilomatrixoma was diagnosed with the appearance of basaloid hair matrix cells and eosinophilic anucleated shadow cells under histologic examination.
The embryos were graded as high quality when the number of blastomeres was between 6 and 10; additionally, all of the blastomeres had equal or almost equal size, and the percentage of anucleated fragments was ≤25% on day 3, blastomere biopsies were performed on embryos with ≥6 cells, and grade better than 2' according to Puissant's criteria on day 3.[6],[7]
demonstrated a new NET formation process where anucleated neutrophils continued their normal cellular functions, such as leukocyte recruitment, chemotaxis, and phagocytosis following NET release [2].
Pyknotic nuclei and anucleated cells were only seen in the most severe dry eye.
Polychromatic erythrocytes (PCEs) were observed at a magnification of 1,000* using optical microscopy (Nikon Eclipse E-200), counted (at least 2,000 polychromatic erythrocytes anucleated per animal were scored for the incidence of micronucleated polychromatic erythrocytes) with the aid of a digital cell counter (Contador Diferencial CCS02, Kacil Industria e Comercio Ltda., PE, Brazil) and photographed using an 8.1 Megapixel Digital Camera (DC FWL 150).
A significant feature of this lesion is the presence of anucleated and slightly eosinophilic cells, which are denominated "ghost cells." Displasic dentin also is present in the fibrous capsule [10, 13].
Repeated fine needle aspiration from different sites revealed fragments of benign ductal epithelial cell in monolayer sheets in a background of abundant mature nucleated and anucleated squamous cells with occasional dysplastic squamous cells (Figure 1A and 1B).
The erythrocytes are the first point of attack by free radicals due to the polyunsaturated lipids that constitute their cell membrane; these cells are anucleated and thus devoid of repair systems [25].
Platelets are small, anucleated, and short-lived blood cells with a range of important functions beyond their classical roles in haemostasis [1-3].
Cytologic study of the sample revealed rare ductal cells, few atypical cells, and anucleated squamous cells in a proteinaceous background.
