Hairy cell leukaemia. Light micrograph of blood cells in a case of hairy cell leukaemia. This sample, treated with May-Grunwald-Giemsa (MGG) stain, shows increased concentration of white blood cells (leucocytes, stained purple). The cells show characteristic hair-like cytoplasmic projections and lobed nuclei. Leukemia is a type of cancer in which the blood-producing tissue in bone marrow produces immature white blood cells without restraint, impairing the function of normal blood cells. Hairy cell leukemia is a rare form of leukemia that mostly affects men.
