In a patient suffering from mycosis fungoides, biopsy from skin eruption revealed cells with lobulated, indented nuclei. However, the majority of the cells had round-to-oval nuclei. Various forms of intranuclear inclusions were found in these atypical cells. These inclusions entitled nuclear bodies are found in various different normal pathological cells.
