- An absolute lymphocytosis has been reported in MCL.
- The circulating MCL cells are small, mature-appearing with

nuclear irregularities. Some MCL cells are small with round nuclei
and condensed chromatin, whereas others are medium in size with
slightly dispersed chromatin, more cytoplasm, or a distinct
