Basophilic stippling

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Basophilic stippling, also known as punctate basophilia, is the presence of numerous basophilic granules that are dispersed through the cytoplasm of erythrocytes in a peripheral blood smear. They can be demonstrated to be RNA. They are composed of aggregates of ribosomes; degenerating mitochondria and siderosomes may be included in the aggregates.[citation needed] In contrast to Pappenheimer bodies, they are negative with Perls' acid ferrocyanide stain for iron (i.e no iron in basophilic stippling).[citation needed] Basophilic stippling is indicative of disturbed erythropoiesis. It can also be found in some normal individuals.[1]
