three separate diseases: nodal, extranodal, splenic
1/3 of all NHL's
not technically a lymphoma, but does involve mature B cells
treatment must begin IMMEDIATELY
paraprotein production (sometimes)
grading based on centroblast number/nodular vs. diffuse growth
most common leukemia in adults
Ki67 100%

spread quickly to other mucosal sites but may be treated with antibiotics early
10-15% get AIHA caused by benign cells
most common lymphoid malignancy in childhood
proliferation rate is high, Ki67+ 40-90%
