CAE is negative or very weak. Hayhoe and Quaglino [8] found SBB to be more sensitive than MPO in detecting monocytic differentiation; they noted that, with SBB, granules in monoblasts were usually scattered and fine whereas in myeloblasts the reaction was either localized or filled all the cytoplasm. Monoblasts were characteristically negative for MPO. e. for ANAE (Fig. 35a), ANBE, NASA (Fig. 35b) and NASDA. All these esterase activities are inhibited by fluoride but only in the case of NASA and NASDA is it necessary to carry out the reaction with and without fluoride to convey specificity; in the case of ANAE and ANBE, the reaction is negative or weak in cells of the granulocytic lineage.

In cases with maturation, eosinophils are readily recognizable by the characteristic staining of their granules. 3), since primitive eosinophil granules differ little in their staining characteristics from the granules of neutrophil lineage myeloblasts (Fig. 48). Mature eosinophils often show vacuolation, degranulation and nuclear hyper- or hypolobulation.

There is often nucleocytoplasmic asynchrony with the nucleus having a diffuse chromatin pattern and one or more nucleoli. When the nuclear shape can be discerned it is found, in the majority of cases, to be reniform or folded or bilobed with only a narrow bridge between the two lobes. The nuclear form is often more apparent on histological sections (Fig. 19). Auer rods are common. In one series they were noted in fewer than 50% of cases [39] but others have observed them to be almost always present, at least in a minority of cells [40].
