abstract

  • Large-cell transformation arising in a patient with a history of marginal zone lymphoma portends a worse prognosis, including death from disseminated disease, whereas a de novo presentation of blastic marginal zone lymphoma may define a clinical course similar to other forms of low-grade cutaneous B-cell lymphoma. The expression of CD5 and CD23 may define a phenotypic profile associated with BT. It is possible that marginal zone lymphomas associated with CD5 and CD23 positivity should be followed more closely and/or treated with radiation and/or complete excision.
