Gene expression profiling has divided diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) into 2 main subgroups: germinal center B (GCB) and non-GCB type. This classification is reproducible by immunohistochemistry using specific antibodies such as CD10, B-cell lymphoma 6 (BCL6), and multiple myeloma oncogene 1 (MUM1). Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) plays an important role in the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and in some cases FNA may be the only available pathological specimen. The objectives of the current study were to evaluate CD10, BCL6, and MUM1 immunostaining on FNA samples by testing the CD10, BCL6, and MUM1 algorithm on both FNA cell blocks (CB) and conventional smears (CS), evaluating differences in CB and CS immunocytochemical (ICC) performance, and comparing results with histological data.

Abstract

Gene expression profiling has divided diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) into 2 main subgroups: germinal center B (GCB) and non-GCB type. This classification is reproducible by immunohistochemistry using specific antibodies such as CD10, B-cell lymphoma 6 (BCL6), and multiple myeloma oncogene 1 (MUM1). Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) plays an important role in the diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and in some cases FNA may be the only available pathological specimen. The objectives of the current study were to evaluate CD10, BCL6, and MUM1 immunostaining on FNA samples by testing the CD10, BCL6, and MUM1 algorithm on both FNA cell blocks (CB) and conventional smears (CS), evaluating differences in CB and CS immunocytochemical (ICC) performance, and comparing results with histological data.
