    3. Xanthoma cells
  4. Tumors:
    1. Basalioma cells, Basophilic and shadow cells
    2. Hibernoma cells (Large polyhedral fat cells containing eosinophilic granular cytoplasm),
    3. Paget cells, Sezary cells, Signet ring cells ( seen in an adenocarcinoma. Sheet of large cells with vacuolated cytoplasm pushing the single hyperchromatic nucleus to the periphery)
    4. Reed Sternberg cells (seen in a case of Hodgkin's lymphoma have bilobed nucleus with a resemblance to an "owl's eye" with prominent eosinophilic inclusion-like nucleoli)
