Histologic and immunohistologic findings of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic leukemia are revised in the light of the more recent knowledge on the pathobiology of the disease. The guidelines for the optimal handling of the bioptic samples are provided. The relevance of the examination of trephines and surgical specimens is outlined with special reference to the identification of risk factors in individual patients.
