Angioimmunoblastic Lymphadenopathy with Dysproteinemia

slide 4 of 11


Comments:
Another high-power view of AILD showing polymorphic infiltrate composed of small lymphocytes, plasma cells, immunoblasts, and abundant eosinophils. Normal germinal centers are replaced by burnt-out germinal centers. Note proliferation of post-capillary venules. The patients are usually middle-aged and elderly. Most cases show monoclonal T-cell receptor gene rearrangements. Patients are at increased risk for secondary lymphomas. Prognosis is poor.
