Pathology (East Africa)
We describe a series of 5 patients in whom the application of consensus criteria for the diagnosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) led to a revised diagnosis. These patients had been recruited in a wider study describing the occurrence of CLL in Kenya. This case series highlights some of the pitfalls of making a diagnosis of CLL without incorporating all criteria.
