Caption: Hodgkin's disease. Light micrograph of two non-dystrophic histiocyte blood cells (centre) in a case of Hodgkin's disease, also called Hodgkin's lymphoma. This is a malignant (cancerous) tumour (neoplasm) that develops in the lymphoreticular system and originates from lymphocyte white blood cells. Histiocytes are cells that form an important part of the immune system, specifically the cells engaged in phagocytosis (engulfing and destroying foreign particles and pathogens). The other cells are red blood cells. This sample was obtained from a lymphatic ganglion.
