Molecular detection of a B cell clone in a case of PTCL in the absence of T cell clonality.

In this paper we document a case of peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL) that exhibited variable T cell histology at presentation and follow-up. Southern blot analysis for T cell receptor (TCR) and immunoglobulin (Ig) receptor gene rearrangements failed to reveal clonal T or B cell populations. TCR gamma (TCRG) and beta (TCRB) chain gene polymerase chain… CONTINUE READING
