Brief Answer: Non Hodgkin lymphoma infiltration in blood Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query on HealthCareMagic. NHL in blood implies Non Hodgkin Lymphoma infiltration in blood. Are you suffering from NHL of lymph node or any other lymphoid organ? If yes then it has infiltrated the peripheral blood. via bone marrow. This implies that NHL has reached stage IV. IgM is an antibody and antibody titers are measured in infections. Are you suffering from any kind of infection? Since, the levels of IgM are high this implies that you have acquired a recent infection by a particular organism. If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer. Dr Shailja P Wahal
