Massive crystal deposition is rare in lymphoplasmacytic (LPc) or plasma cell neoplasms. We report three cases in which the accumulation of crystals in histiocytes closely reproduced the histologic features of adult rhabdomyoma. The patients, all female, aged 18, 77, and 78 years, presented with tumor of cervical lymph nodes (two cases) or the otolaryngic mucosa (two cases). In addition, two patients had monoclonal serum or urine immunoglobulin (IgM-kappa-1, unknown-1), and one had renal and… CONTINUE READING
