Scholarcy highlights

  • Leukemic B-cell chronic lymphoproliferative disorders are a relatively heterogeneous group of diseases, all of which exhibit a clonal expansion of mature-appearing B-lymphoid cells in the peripheral blood
  • Both primary leukemias and the leukemic phase of primary lymphomas are included in this category
  • Among the primary B-cell leukemias, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, prolymphocytic leukemia, and hairy cell leukemia are usually considered; within the primary lymphomas, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, marginal zone splenic lymphoma, lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma, and the large B-cell lymphomas exhibit PB involvement more frequently. These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors
