Conclusions: Gene rearrangement analyses correlate highly with conventional morphologic diagnosis and phenotyping. The detection of gene rearrangement in lymphoid tissue has a high specificity (99%) and a reasonable sensitivity (83%) to the development of a lymphoproliferative disorder.

    Background: Cells with "hand mirror" morphology have not, to the best of our knowledge, been described in a primary effusion sample. This paper describes a case of T-cell lymphoma with eosinophilia in a patient with suspected peritoneal carcinomatosis. Rarely, a T-cell lymphoproliferative...

    The majority of plasma cell myelomas (PCMs) are positive for CD200, a membrane protein with immunosuppressive function. There are no flow cytometry data in the literature on plasma cell CD200 expression in other immunoproliferative disorders. Therefore we used flow cytometry to study the...

    The diagnosis of pulmonary sarcoidosis relies in part on the observation of alveolar CD4+ lymphocytosis. However, this criterion is not fully discriminative because this anomaly is also found in other types of lung diseases. Among other possible distinctive criteria, we investigated the...

    Peripheral T cell neoplasms (PTCNs) such as peripheral T cell lymphoma, adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma, and mycosis fungoides are associated with poorer prognoses compared to B cell neoplasms. Hence, an accurate and early diagnosis is necessary for the successful treatment of PTCNs; however,...
