Abstract: Intranuclear bodies which are spherical in shape are clearly seen by 'Anoptral' (negative) phase microscopy in the nucleus of Entamoeba. These bodies vary in size and numbers from cell to cell. With interference microscopy the intranuclear bodies appear as spherical granules in the nucleus of the cell. Their distribution and numbers are again very variable. With electron microscopy the bodies can be clearly seen inside the nucleus. They are always spherical in shape but vary in size from 0·1 to 1·5 μm. They may be empty or contain granular or membranous material. They display the capacity to move out of the nucleus. © 1973.
