MBL Case: Bone Marrow Biopsy

Slide 21

October 2008

The bone marrow on the left hand side stained with Pax-5, a pan-B-cell antibody, shows a slightly increased number of scattered B-cells. On the right hand side, one can identify a rare small aggregate of Pax-5-positive B-cells. This case exemplifies a minimal disease burden that one can find with an early MBL.

It should be noted that this patient, after a couple years of follow-up, has shown no progression of disease.
