To verify that red cell inclusions contain iron, it is necessary to use an iron stain, such as Perl's Prussian blue. The iron-containing granules are called siderotic granules. A mature erythrocyte containing siderotic granules is referred to as a siderocyte, while an immature (nucleated) erythrocyte containing siderotic granules is known as a sideroblast. A Pappenheimer body is a siderotic granule which is visible on Wright stain. All Pappenheimer bodies are Prussian blue positive, but not all siderotic granules are visible on Wright's stain as Pappenheimer bodies.
