Abstract

Correct diagnosis and classification of lymphoid neoplasms depends on the integration of morphologic, immunophenotypic and molecular genetic features. The mature small B cell lymphomas despite their overlapping histomorphologies, have different clinical behavior and treatment. In this review, differential diagnosis of this category of tumors and a practical approach based on biomarkers evaluation is discussed.
