March 8, 2011 (Tuesday) - Odd cell revisited

On January 21 I posted a picture of a blood cell that looked weird. I mentioned this cell on an international mailing list to which I subscribe, and the blog entry for that day got hundreds of hits, and I received dozens of comments. The general consensus was that the cell could be ignored as it was a one-off oddity.

The patient has returned. The one-off oddity is back, and it has friends.

The medical opinion is that the patient has a marginal zone splenic lymphoma, but these cells are just plain odd…
