To avoid this issue, immunohistochemical stains targeted against the B-cell neoplasm are carefully evaluated to ensure the absence of the primary B-cell neoplasm on the tissue section tested for immunoglobulin gene rearrangement in the neoplastic cells of H/DS.
In the majority of cases, flow cytometry analysis is of little or no value to the detection of HRS and the diagnosis of CHL, as neoplastic cells are rarely seen in the cytological preparations (1), and it usefulness is limited to tissue samples such as lymph nodes (12).
The smoldering variant differs from the chronic variant in that the smoldering type is associated with a normal white blood cell count but with >5% circulating neoplastic cells (3).
