Under a magnification of 1000X, this photomicrograph of a blood smear, revealed the presence of an eosinophilic leukocyte (arrowhead), also known as an eosinophil, a type of white blood cell (WBC). A polymorphonuclear WBC, due to its multilobular nucleus, the eosinophil is categorized as a granulocyte due to the presence of granules in the cell’s cytoplasm. Surrounding this eosinophil, were numerous red blood cells (RBCs), also referred to as erythrocytes.
