Natural killer (NK) cell neoplasms are unusual disorders. In this study we compared results of flow cytometric immunophenotype (FCI) with cytomorphology, histopathology and clinical findings in a series of patients with NK cell neoplasms with peripheral blood and/or bone marrow involvement, and the FCI of neoplastic and normal NK cells were compared. Retrospective data and specimens (bone marrow aspiration or peripheral blood) from 71 cases of NK cell neoplasms were obtained. All patients have… CONTINUE READING
