Caption: Dohle bodies in blood cell. Light micrograph of a neutrophil white blood cell (centre) with Dohle bodies. These are small inclusions within the cell's cytoplasm. This abnormality is associated with a process called toxic granulation, and is characteristic of several blood disorders. Neutrophils, like all white blood cells, are part of the body's immune system. They are involved in the body's immune response and help to defend the body from pathogens. Granules within their cytoplasm contain enzymes used to destroy invading organisms. Like all granulocytes, neutrophils have a multi-lobed nucleus.
