High frequency of autonomous T-cell proliferation compatible with T-cell large granular lymphocytic leukemia in patients with cytopenia of unknown etiology.

Large granular lymphocytic leukemia/lymphoproliferative disorder (LGL-L/LPD) is a heterogeneous neoplastic disease of large granular lymphocytes and is a well-known cause of cytopenias. We aimed to reveal the incidence of LGL-L/LPD in patients with cytopenia(s) of unknown etiology (CUE). Twenty-eight patients with CUE were investigated for LGL-L/LPD. T-cell… (More)
