These are large cells about twice to three times the size of the erythrocytes.
The erythrocytes are the more resistant, the weaker the concentration which leaves them still uninjured.

Besides the larger myelocytes, much smaller forms, approximating to the size of the erythrocytes are also found.
In a few months the erythrocytes return to nearly their original number.
Nuclei, basophilic granules, and all blood parasites are blue; erythrocytes are red or pink; eosinophilic granules, bright red.
