Hello,I am Dr. Aren and i will help with your query.Your doctor possibly suspects leukemia/lymphoma as the cause of your fever and weight loss.The bone marrow staining will need further description of the aggregating of the B cells and T cells to confirm the diagnosis of T cell Lymphoma .The report will carry a suggestion if the presentation is benign or malignant/indeterminate.This is a partial report of a bone marrow histopathology after staining,further staining may be needed .
