OBJECTIVE To explore the clinicopathologic features of lymphoplasmacytic lymphomas (LPL). METHODS Routine histological examination was performed on hematoxylin-eosin stained sections of 24 bone marrow biopsies and available 6 concurrent lymph node specimens. Immunohistochemistry study was performed using EliVision methods. RESULTS Among 24 cases, the male-to-female ratio was 2.4:1 and the median age was 59.5 years (42 - 75). The most common symptom was weakness (83.3%, 20/24… 
Clinical, Laboratory, and Bone Marrow Findings of 31 Patients With Waldenström Macroglobulinemia
Immunohistochemistry and flow cytometric immunophenotyping are useful for diagnosing Waldenström macroglobulinemia, and increased CD154-positive MC can indicate poor prognosis.
CD138 expression helps distinguishing Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM) from splenic marginal zone lymphoma (SMZL).
CD138 expression may constitute an additional aid in the distinction between WM and SMZL since both entities share overlapping clinical, immunophenotypic, and histopathologic characteristics.
