Diagnosis of MBL & SLL: IWCLL

Slide 9

October 2008

In addition to redefining CLL the IWCLL also redefined the diagnosis of MBL as well as SLL. MBL is now recognized as a disease entity and is defined as those cases that have a B-cell count of less than 5,000 and having the absence of lymphadenopathy or organomegaly which would be characteristic of SLL. It is important to note that there are similar expressions of genetic risk factors in MBL cases as compared to early stage CLL. SLL is defined as those cases with lymphadenopathy or organomegaly and having a B-cell count of less than 5,000.
