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).
