A clone with an unbalanced translocation t(8;14)(p11;q31), resulting in deletion of the distal part of the long arm of chromosome 14, 14q31 → 14qter, was detected in a case of Piringer's lymphadenitis. Histopathologically no atypical cells or other signs of malignant lymphoma were found. Southern blot analyses showed no rearrangement of the immunoglobulin heavy chain gene (IGH) or the T‐cell receptor γ chain (TCRG) gene. The case exemplifies that the detection of a chromosomally aberrant clone does not necessarily prove that a lymphoproliferative process is malignant. © 1993 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
