Figure 2: Microphotographs of post mortem specimens. (a) ascitic fluid cytology and (b) lymph node imprint smears show atypical lymphoid cells (Leishman-Giemsa 400×). (c) section from a diaphragmatic nodule, (d) liver nodule, (e) pleura, (f) omentum, (g) pancreas, (h) and rectus abdominis muscle deposit show infiltration by atypical lymphoid cells with brisk mitotic activity and karyorrhectic debris (hematoxylin-eosin 20×). (i) atypical lymphoid cells were diffusely CD20 positive (100×) and (j) CD3 negative (100×). (k) they were also immunopositive for c-MYC (40×). (l) Ki67 proliferation index was >90% (40×)
