50) are infrequent in normal bone marrow in which they rarely constitute more than 1% of nucleated cells. In healthy children they are even less frequent [42]. They are distinctive cells with a diameter of 15–20 µm and an eccentric nucleus, moderately basophilic cytoplasm and a prominent paranuclear Golgi zone. The cytoplasm may contain occasional vacuoles and sometimes stains pink with a May–Grünwald–Giemsa (MGG) stain, consequent on the presence of carbohydrate. The nuclear chromatin shows prominent coarse clumps, although the clock-face chromatin pattern that is often discernible in histological sections is usually less apparent in films.

32). Megakaryocyte proliferation and platelet production are primarily regulated by interactions between thrombopoietin (TPO) and its cell surface receptor, MPL [33]. An increased demand for platelets, for example due to peripheral destruction, leads to an increase in ploidy level and cell size, apparent in a bone marrow film as an increased volume of cytoplasm and a large, usually well- TH E N OR M A L B ON E M A R R OW 23 Fig. 32 Aspirate of normal BM: a late megakaryocyte which has shed most of its cytoplasm as platelets.

They are difficult to recognize in H&E-stained histological sections because the granules do not stain distinctively.
