Abstract

The authors report a case of ehrlichiosis involving a bone marrow specimen from a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Since Ehrlichia may cause a lymphohistiocytic reaction in bone marrow specimens, an infectious process may be easily confused with a lymphoid neoplasm, particularly in patients with a history of lymphoid malignancy.
