Malignant lymphoma with intracellular immunoglobulins giving a "signet ring" appearance to the lymphocytes is a recently described morphologic variant with specific ultrastructural and immunohistochemical characteristics. We report a case that had this distinctive morphology when initially biopsied but on subsequent biopsy 2 1/2 years later had the typical appearance of a poorly differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma without "signet ring" cells. The same monoclonal immunoglobulin class and light… CONTINUE READING
