Most MVLs express B-cell antigens and have been compared ultrastructurally to transformed follicular center cells and follicular dendritic cells. For additional definition of the immunophenotype of these unusual B-cell lymphomas, we evaluated eight cases of MVL for B-cell-associated antigens (CD21, CD35, CDw75, DBA… CONTINUE READING
