Plasma cell with multiple vacuoles, normal marrow

One Plasma Cell with Multiple Vacuoles. The cell to its upper right has a very basophilic blue cytoplasm with 1 distinct vacuole and a colorless area encircling most of the nucleus. It resembles an early NRBC, but the dense nuclear chromatin and intermediate nuclear/cytoplasm ratio suggest it is a plasma cell. An early eosinophil is at top center. Several neutrophilic myelocytes, and bands are present. Normal marrow - 100X
