Abstract

I read the case report titled De Novo Deletion 17p (del17p) in an Adult T-Cell Prolymphocytic Leukemia as a Rare Presentation, by Zara-tul-Ain Bashir et al. which published in the latest issue Volume 4, Issue 1, 2019 of your journal. As stated by the authors, T cell prolymphocytic leukemia is an exceptional condition that characterized with accumulation of lymphocytes not only in blood stream and bone marrow but also in lymph nodes and spleen. In fact, since malignant lymphoyctes originated from post-thymic T cell, nomenclature as “prolymphocyte” is a misused term.
