Pathologist and Microbiologist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM,
The interpretation of immunophenotype is as follows:
There is presence of B cell lymphoma.
Lymphoma is malignancy arising from lymphocytes.
On the basis of immunophenotypic staining the lymphoma is probably marginal zone lymphoma.
Consult your hematologist for further management.

Thanks and take care
