Pathology

In brief: Lymphocyte family

These are a special group of white blood cells that actually kill cells that the body perceives to perhaps be infected.
This is usually, but not always, a good thing. We pathologists recognize them as cd8+, staining brown with a special stain. I'm glad you're interested in the immune system, which still amazes scientists. Thanks for asking.
