Emperipolesis in a Case of B-Cell Lymphoma: A Rare Phenomenon Outside of Rosai-Dorfman Disease
MetadataShow full item record
We describe a case of a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma with extensive emperipolesis phenomenon. Light microscopy revealed numerous CD68-positive/S-100-negative histiocytes containing viable neoplastic hematopoietic cells in their cytoplasm. Electron microscopy confirmed these findings. In this case, there was no evidence of Rosai-Dorfman disease either clinically or histologically. This report emphasizes that emperipolesis is not restricted to Rosai-Dorfman disease and can be found in other conditions including non-Hodgkin lymphomas. © 2003 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
