Study of morphologic and immunophenotypic profile lymphocytes on peripheral blood from patients with mycosis fungoides in early and advanced stages

by Ferreira de, Patrícia Aparecida

Abstract (Summary)
Aiming to evaluate peripheral blood lymphocytes in mycosis fungoides, we have performed hemogram and immunophenotyping by flow cytometry in about 40 patients and 26 healthy people. We have noticed that only diseased patients presented S├ęzary cells higher than 7% and pleomorphic cells higher than 24%. Quantitative and qualitative changes, loss of immunophenotyping markers and the presence of lymphocytes populations with different size, on flow cytometry, were firstly verified on patients rather than numeric and morphologic changes in
