mar·gin·a·tion

(mar'ji-nā'shŭn),
A phenomenon that occurs during the relatively early phases of inflammation; as a result of dilation of capillaries and slowing of the bloodstream, leukocytes tend to occupy the periphery of the cross-sectional lumen and adhere to the endothelial cells that line the vessels.

Multinucleation, chromatin margination, and nuclear molding are seen (Papanicolaou, original magnification X600).
In muscle cells of the diseased crabs, condensation and margination of nuclear chromatin (Figure 5) injury of nuclear membranes, and mitochondria disintegration could be observed, moreover, myofibril arrangement was loose and there were many vesicles between myofibril.
The mechanism of autoimmune neutropenia in SLE may involve a combination of increased peripheral destruction, decreased bone marrow production, and increased margination. As our patient had strongly positive anti-neutrophil antibodies in the setting of a negative ANA, it is possible that more biomarkers are associated with SLE than those that are currently known.
Most AO+ and PI- apoptotic cells were noticed with chromatin condensation staining a bright-green colour and nuclear margination, apoptotic granulation, and chromatin fragmentation with the appearances of membrane blebbing in some samples, which can be considered as moderate apoptosis.
Chromatin margination and compaction towards the nuclear periphery generate numerous compact electron dense micronuclei that are released in the extracellular space (Figures 3(b)(B), 4(b)(B), and 5(b)(B)).
