Downie bodies

Downie bodies are a type of inclusion body associated with cowpox.[1]

They are named for Allan Watt Downie.

They are also known as a type of A-type inclusion.[2]

It should not be confused with the term "Downey bodies", which refers to a type of T cell observed in infectious mononucleosis.[3]
