Most common morphologic type noted was clinically aggressive intermediate grade diffuse small cleaved cell
Other histological patterns have been described as small cell lymphocytic, diffuse small cleaved cell
, large cell immunoblastic and polymorphous types.
Expression of p53 protein is significantly increased in follicular large cell lymphoma (grade 3) compared with follicular small cleaved cell
lymphoma (grade 1) in adults.
Fortunately, the incidence is much less for large cell than for small cleaved cell
small lymphocytic, consistent with CLL (SL) follicular, predominantly small cleaved cell
(FSC) follicular, mixed small cleaved and large cell (FM)
cells in 51% of nodular small cleaved cell
Diffuse, large noncleaved cell lymphoma is the most common subtype, followed by large cell immunoblastic and large cleaved cell
We report the unusual case of a 73-year-old man with follicular small cleaved cell
lymphoma involving a right groin lymph node 13 years before present admission who had a composite lymphoma, with a combination of nodular sclerosing Hodgkin disease (HD) and follicular small cleaved cell
The neoplastic cells vary from small to large, showing folding and cleaving of the nuclei, resembling centrocytes (small- to medium-sized cleaved cells
with inconspicuous nucleoli) and centroblasts (large noncleaved cells with vesicular chromatin and several peripheral nucleoli).
The follicles were composed of predominantly small cleaved cells
2] The neoplastic B lymphocytes display a heterogeneous spectrum of morphology, including centroblasts, immunoblasts, multilobated, multinucleated, RS-like cells (especially the lymphocytic and histiocytic [L&H] variants of RS cells), as well as large cleaved cells
and large non-cleaved cells
