Abstract

Occupational exposure to asbestos has been associated with an increased incidence of lung and gastric cancers, mesotheliomas, and myelolymphoid malignancies. A new observation of a patient with indirect exposure to asbestos who developed mesothelioma and plasmacytoid lymphocytic non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is described. This report and the previously described stimulation of B lymphocytes by asbestos suggests that the association of mesothelioma with lymphoid and plasma cell malignancies is not merely a coincidence.
