well-differentiated lymphocytic lymphoma
Essentially the same disease as chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, except that lymphocytes are not increased in the peripheral blood; lymph nodes are enlarged and other lymphoid tissue or bone marrow is infiltrated by small lymphocytes.
Synonyms: small lymphocytic lymphoma.
