Q. Love your website, its helped me remember some super key concepts. Im kinda confused on something though. Whats the difference between howell jolly bodies and heinz bodies?
A. Great question! Howell-Jolly bodies are little fragments of the red cell nucleus. You see them most commonly in patients with splenectomies (normally, the spleen just bites them out). You can see them without a special stain – they look like dark, round dots.
