In patients with follicular lymphoma treated with single-agent rituximab, single nucleotide polymorphisms in the FCGR3A gene are known to influence response and progression-free survival. The prognostic role of FCGR3A and FCGR2A polymorphisms in patients with follicular lymphoma treated with rituximab and chemotherapy combination remains controversial and(More)
The presence of circulating villous lymphocytes (VLs) in lymphoma patients usually points to splenic marginal zone B-cell lymphoma (SMZL), even if the VLs can be found occasionally in other small B-cell lymphomas. However, those cells are variably described, and detailed cytologic characterization is often lacking. We identified lymphoma cases with numerous(More)
The translocation t(14;18) and its t(2;18) and t(18,22) variants, which involve the BCL2 genetic hallmark for follicular lymphoma (FL), have been reported in several cases of chronic B-cell lymphoproliferative disease (CLPD) and frequently in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). We describe here the clinical, morphological, immunological, cytogenetic and(More)
Splenic Diffuse Red Pulp Lymphoma (SDRPL) has been recently introduced as a provisional entity but differential diagnosis with other splenic lymphomas is needed to be clarified since the therapeutic approaches are distinct. Recently described recurrent mutations or CD180 expression appear useful for differential diagnosis. We completed our previous(More)
Splenic diffuse red pulp lymphoma is an indolent small B-cell lymphoma recognised as a provisional entity in the WHO 2008 classification. Its precise relationship with other related splenic B-cell lymphomas with frequent leukaemic involvement or other lymphoproliferative disorders remains undetermined. We performed whole-exome sequencing to explore the(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in FCγ-receptor genes FCGR3A (rs396991) and FCGR2A (rs1801274) influence the affinity of the Fc portion of anti-CD20 immunoglobulin G1 monoclonal antibody. Their roles in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) treated with rituximab in combination with anthracycline-based chemotherapy remain controversial. To address(More)
