For the suspected case of neurolymphomatosis, patient 8, a dual color probe for the 3q27 (BCL6) locus was used for enumeration of chromosome 3 and a dual color MALT1 (18q21) break apart probe for that locus to assess translocation.
This case was suspected to be neurolymphomatosis by light microscopy (Figure 1, I) and the combination of immunoreactivity for both CD5 (Figure 1, J) and bcl-2, but all attempts to prove clonality by polymerase chain reaction-based gene rearrangement were negative.
