The relationship between mononuclear, multinucleated and multilobated Sternberg-Reed cells was studied by reconstructions done on serial sections 1–2 μm thick. The 21 cells so studied showed the following combinations: 7 were binucleated, but two nuclei were composed of two parts at certain levels; these nuclei we propose to call composite. 8 cells were mononuclear and had composite nuclei and 6 cells were mononuclear and had single nuclei.
