Follicular lymphoma (FL) is the most common indolent non-Hodgkin lymphoma, compromising approximately 20% of cases. The condition is characterized by neoplastic germinal center B cells. In approximately 90% of cases, neoplastic B cells harbor the t(14;18) (q32;q21) IGH/BCL2 translocation. This translocation — the genetic hallmark of FL — is caused by disruption of V(D)J recombination in the bone marrow, resulting in overexpression of BCL2.
