The category of small sized cell lymphoid neoplasms include chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) / small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), follicular lymphoma, marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) and lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (LDL) / Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia (WM).
The unifying feature for this group of neoplasms is their derivation from mature B cell and are indolent lymphomas mostly.
But, their morphological and immunophenotypical findings, cytogenetics and molecular genetics exhibit considerable heterogenic expression.
The recent identification about pathologic features of the small cell lymphoid neoplasms might contribute to their better understandings.
