A prospective evaluation of the nitroblue tetrazolium (NBT) dye reduction reaction revealed that the response of neutrophils from 76 lymphoma patients was comparable to a control population of 44 patients without underlying malignancy. The NBT test proved to be a useful adjunct in distinguishing fever as a systemic manifestation of underlying lymphoma from that secondary to bacterial infection. In contrast to lymphoma patients with „B”︁ fever, bacterially‐infected lymphoma patients had elevated… Expand
