Eosinophilia and plasmacytosis of the bone marrow in Hodgkin's disease.

Abstract

Eosinophilia and plasmacytosis of the bone marrow were found in a group of patients with newly diagnosed Hodgkin's disease. An attempt was made to correlate these cytologic findings with other modalities used in the staging of patients with Hodgkin's disease and believed to have prognostic importance, such as age, sex, histologic type of Hodgkin's disease, presence or absence of bone marrow involvement, and pathologic stage. Statistical analyses of these finding s indicated that eosinophilia and plasmacytosis occur frequently but to date appear to be nonspecific findings. Whether the occurrence of eosinophilia and plasmacytosis is related to an immune response in unknown.
