Figure 3: Splenic marginal zone lymphoma. Low power (20) view of Hematoxylin and Eosin stained slide demonstrating SMZL in a splenectomy specimen. There is involvement of the white pulp by an atypical lymphoid infiltrate expanding the marginal zone area (a). Higher power view (200) demonstrates a monocytoid and plasmacytoid appearance to the atypical lymphoid cells (b). High power (1000) view of the Wright-Giemsa stained slide highlights a splenic villous lymphocyte containing cytoplasmic projections (c).
