Every differentiated cell has a unique morphology with a characteristic nucleus. The function of the nucleus is to dictate the metabolic activity of the cell by transcription and translation. Any change endured by the cell necessitates the nucleus to instruct modifications in intracellular molecular pathways to adapt to the environment. Molecular changes within a cell bring about acclimatization of the cytoplasmic organelles and the nucleus, which can be visualized microscopically. This article describes the most frequently observed morphologies adopted by the nucleus in various pathologies.
