abstract

  • From our experience, laparoscopy can safely provide tissue samples of suspected lymphoma for full diagnostic analysis. It should be considered when percutaneous biopsy is not technically possible, when chromosomal or genetic analysis is needed for treatment decisions, or when the results of percutaneous biopsy are inadequate to make therapeutic decisions.
