Case 55 – Update

The film for this patient showed moderate sized lymphocytes with frequently clefted nuclei and nucleoli. There were no smear cells. The laboratory staff decided to send the specimen for flow cytometry and obtained the following results:

  • CD5+
  • CD10-
  • CD19+
  • CD20+
  • CD23-
  • FMC7+

T cell and myeloid markers were negative.
