RESUMEN

Son presentadas las características citomorfológicas anormales encontradas en el LCR de dos pacientes, uno de ellos sufriendo de leucemia aguda a células plasmáticas y otro de linfoma mixto no Hodgkin. Se enfatiza la importancia del estudio del LCR en estas patologias.


SUMMARY

Cytomorphological findings in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of two patiens suffering plasma cell leukemia and non Hodgkin's mixed cell lymphoma are reported. In the first were found inmature plasma cells, polynucleate giant cells with giant nucleoli and atypical mitoses. In the second one polynucleate giant cells with hypercromatic and polyfissured nuclei and atypical mitoses are prominent. It is emphasized the importance of the early cytomorphological CSF study in patients with myelo or lymphoproliferatíve diseases.
