ABSTRACT
1. The surface properties of human erythrocytes from subjects who where asyptomatic and who had various disease process were observed in the circulation, removed and then studied with the light, dark-field, phase contrast, and electron microscope. 2. The correlation between morphologic appearances in the circulation ad in the electron microscope was good. 3. There was no constant correlation between the morphologic appearances when in the circulation and in vitro with the light microscope. 4. Fuzzy, amorphous interfaces on erythrocytes were observed in the electron microscope and in the circulation. Such erythrocytes were usually aggregated in the circulation and were observed in patients with various disease processes. 5. Erythrocytes with sharp interfaces were observed in the electron microscope and similarly appearing erythrocytes were also seen in the circulation in normal individuals.
