Early Follicular Center Cell Lymphoma, Mouse

  • Jerrold M. Ward
Part of the Monographs on Pathology of Laboratory Animals book series (LABORATORY)


The early stage of follicular center cell lymphoma in mice usually occurs in a spleen of normal size and weight. Occasionally, the spleen is also slightly enlarged (Yumoto et al. 1980).
