Small gray-blue intracytoplasmic inclusions were noted in the peripheral monocytes and neutrophils from a patient with renal failure. Ultrastructural analysis revealed confronting cisternae within the cytoplasm. The authors submit a case report to introduce a previously underscribed morphologic feature of leukocytes that may be mistaken at the light microscopic level for Dohle bodies or other inclusions
