Subclinical chronic lymphocytic leukaemia associated with a 13q deletion presenting initially in the skin: Apropos of a case
Chromosomes, Human, Pair 13
Leukemia, Lymphocytic, Chronic, B-Cell
This case identifies a cutaneous presentation of subclinical B-CLL. There are two prior reports describing B-CLL presenting initially in the skin. In one case, the infiltrates were incidental on a re-excision specimen. The second report suggests 16% of B-CLL patients have cutaneous manifestations as the first sign of disease.
