Döhle-Körper in neutrophilen Leukozyten bei anämischen Ferkeln

Döhle-legemer i neutrophile leucocytter hos anemiske griser

Summary

The occurrence of Döhle bodies in the neutrophil leucocytes of anaemic pigs, iron deficiency anaemia included, is described.

In blood films from 50 apparently healthy pigs similar basophilic structures were observed in small numbers in 4 of them.

Zusammenfassung

Das Vorkommen von Döhle-Körpern in neutrophilen Leukozyten wird bei Ferkelanämie, einschliesslich der Eisenmangelanämie bei Jungferkeln, beschrieben.

In Blutausstrichen von 50 anscheinend gesunden Ferkeln wurde eine geringe Anzahl ähnlicher basophiler Strukturen bei 4 Tieren ermittelt.

Sammendrag
