abstract

  • In a prospective study of patients with different forms of motor neuron disease, we performed bone marrow biopsy to evaluate the possibility that the patient might have an otherwise asymptomatic lymphoma. By the time 37 patients had been studied, two patients had been found to have lymphoma, one with and one without paraproteinemia.
