Abstract

Pleural involvement is a rare complication of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). We report a CLL case of T-cell origin (documented by cell surface marker as well as DNA rearrangement studies) where the lymphoid cells of the pleural fluid were found to belong to the same monoclonal population of T cells as those of the peripheral blood.
