AB  - Follicular lymphoma in situ (FLIS) and mantle cell lymphoma in situ (MCLIS) are
      histopathologic findings of undetermined clinical significance. We studied a
      series of 341 consecutive lymph node resection specimens from patients diagnosed 
      with colorectal (201 cases) and breast (140 cases) adenocarcinoma between 1998
      and 2000. Incidental and isolated FLIS was identified in 11/341 patients (3.23%),
      whereas incidental and isolated MCLIS was found in 2/341 patients (0.59%). None
      of these cases developed overt lymphoma. A second series of 17 cases of FLIS (16 
      cases) and MCLIS (1 case) from consultation files was analyzed. Five cases with
      incidental and isolated FLIS were identified. None of these cases developed overt
      lymphoma. Overall, none of the 16 cases with incidental and isolated FLIS in both
      series developed overt FL after a median follow-up of 54 months (range, 7 to 187 
      mo). However, 12 of these cases with a clinical suspicion of lymphoproliferative 
      disorder showed the association (in different lymph nodes) or combination (in the
      same sample) of FLIS or MCLIS with other lymphoid neoplasms (FL, splenic marginal
      zone lymphoma, nodal marginal zone lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, diffuse large
      B-cell lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma,
      multiple myeloma). In conclusion, the clinical relevance of FLIS and MCLIS seems 
      to strictly depend on the clinical context. Incidental FLIS or MCLIS seem to have
      a very low risk for transformation, which recommends careful clinical examination
      after histopathologic diagnosis and conservative management with follow-up for a 
      limited period of time.
