Scope note: Mature LYMPHOCYTES and MONOCYTES transported by the blood to the body's extravascular space. They are morphologically distinguishable from mature granulocytic leukocytes by their large, non-lobed nuclei and lack of coarse, heavily stained cytoplasmic granules.
Annotation: do not confuse with MONOCYTES; Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMC) unspecified goes here; prefer specific indentions
