Common germinal-center B-cell origin of the malignant cells in two composite lymphomas, involving classical Hodgkin's disease and either follicular lymphoma or B-CLL.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Classical Hodgkin's disease (HD) and B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) occasionally occur in the same patient. Such composite lymphomas represent interesting models to study the pathogenesis of B-cell lymphomas and the relationship between HD and B-cell NHL. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed two composite lymphomas (a combination of classical… (More)
