The appearance of the leukemic blasts vary from small cells with coarsely reticular nuclear chromatin pattern, scant cytoplasm, and indistinct nucleoli to larger cells with finely dispersed nuclear chromatin, moderately abundant cytoplasm, and prominent nucleoli. Vacuoles might be present, but only rarely are they as prominent as in Burkitt lymphoma. Cytoplasmic granules are found in a small number of cases. Auer rods are absent. Morphologically, acute B-cell leukemia is indistinguishable from T-cell ALL.
