lymphoproliferative disorders a group of malignant neoplasms arising from cells related to the common multipotential, primordial lymphoreticular cell that includes among others the lymphocytic, histiocytic, and monocytic leukemias, multiple myeloma, plasmacytoma, Hodgkin's disease, all lymphocytic lymphomas, and immunosecretory disorders associated with monoclonal gammopathy. An interrelationship with the myeloproliferative disorders is thought to exist.

In addition, appropriate analysis of the light scatter properties of these events must be made to take into account the possible existence of selective cell doublets such as those that usually occur in B-cell chronic lymphoproliferative disorders (116).
Owing to overlapping clinical and pathologic features, such as large cells with CD30 expression, C-ALCL and LyP are grouped together in the current WHO classification as CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs) and represent the second most common clonal T-cell proliferations in the skin.
Type I is composed of a monoclonal immunoglobulin that is always linked to a B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder such as Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia or multiple myeloma.
To avoid the possibility that both populations were part of the same clone, cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) arising in a background of follicular lymphoma (FL) or marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) were precluded if no other B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders were present.
In 1995, Silvestri and colleagues evaluated 537 patients affected by lymphoproliferative disorders including Hodgkin lymphoma, multiple myeloma, acute lymphocytic leukemia, and NHL.
Similar problems are encountered in the diagnosis of lymphoproliferative disorders, although certain disorders such as hairy cell leukemia (HCL) can be quite distinctive morphologically.
The majority of cases have been of B-cell lineage, and most have been associated with follicular lymphoma (1-3) with less association with other B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (4-9).
