Virtual histopathology slide box

Abstract

The virtual histopathology slide box provides an introduction to the histology of diseased cells and tissues. Each specimen is accompanied by a caption that provides information on staining, magnification, and the structures shown. Virtual microscopy is provided in cooperation with Smart Zoom®. Complementary to this Learning Card, the virtual histology slide box contains numerous images of captioned normal histological specimens with the same virtual microscopy feature. Some images from that learning card have been included here also for easy comparison.

Blood and lymphatic system

The following slides are sorted by disease rather than organ systems.

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL on blood smear)

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML on blood smear)

Hodgkin lymphoma

Non-Hodgkin lymphomas

Hairy cell leukemia

Multiple myeloma

Follicular lymphoma

Mantle cell lymphoma

Diffuse large B cell lymphoma

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)

CLL is classified as a lymphocytic lymphoma (belonging to the group of the B cell Non-Hodgkin lymphomas). However, for the sake of clarity, here it is shown in the context of other types of leukemia.

Myeloproliferative neoplasms

Essential thrombocythemia

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)

CML is classified as a myeloproliferative neoplasm. However, for the sake of clarity, here it is shown in the context of other types of leukemia.
