Immunodiagnosis of Lymphoid and Mononuclear Phagocytic Neoplasms

Part of the Developments in Oncology book series (DION, volume 34)


The malignant lymphomas represent multiple diseases with diverse morphologic and clinical expressions. Morphologic classification schemes have been shown to be useful in delineating natural history, prognosis and response to therapy (1). However, in some instances distinctive morphologic entities may be very closely related clinically and/or biologically, whereas other diseases that share morphologic similarities may be clinically and biologically quite distinct. The application of modern immunologic techniques and concepts has permitted the development of a conceptual framework which may be used to decipher the morphologic diversity of these neoplasms, and has shown the relationship of lymphoid and mononuclear phagocytic neoplasms to the normal immune system (2).
