46 have been found to be an adverse prognostic marker at presentation of lymphoma. Paraproteins are a common finding in B-cell indolent lymphomas and are detected by serum electrophoresis. e. they are identical in structure) and are usually immunoglobulin (Ig) G, IgA or IgM, thus reflecting the clonal nature of the tumor and the normal function of the B cells from which the tumor derives. Monitoring paraprotein levels is a useful measure of disease response, especially in certain types of lymphoma such as Waldenström macroglobulinemia/lymphoplasmacytoid lymphoma.
4). Pathology. 4). These findings are not diagnostic, because they are occasionally seen in other lymphomas. However, the near-100% mitotic rate (as measured by an immunostain such as Ki-67) is not found in any other type of cancer. The immunophenotype is one of a mature germinal-center B-cell phenotype expressing CD19, CD20 and CD10. The extreme mitotic rate is in part due to overexpression of the c-MYC oncogene, which forces the cell to proliferate. The gene is located on chromosome 8 and can translocate to one of three immunoglobulin genes located on chromosomes 14, 22 and 2 (t(8;14), t(8;22) or t(2;8)).
However, a lymphoma that heavily infiltrates the bone marrow may lead to a life-threatening pancytopenia (reduction in circulating blood cells). Occasionally, lymphomas will give rise to autoimmune phenomena, such as hemolysis or peripheral neuropathy. Management steps The management of any patient with lymphoma follows the same path: • biopsy • staging • initial therapy • restaging to determine response to chemotherapy • completion of therapy. This principle is just as true at relapse as it is at first presentation.
