Two cases are reported of an apparently distinct type of immune disorder. Beginning with mild anaemia and widespread massive lymphadenopathy, the disease progressed to a fatal autoimmune type haemolytic anaemia. Serum investigation showed polyclonal hypergamma-globulinaemia and some autoantibodies. Repeat lymph node biopsies in each case showed hyperplasia within B lymphocyte territory (follicular hyperplasia and polyclonal plasmacytosis with IgG predominance) and atrophy of T dependent areas. Dilatation of lymph sinuses, vascular proliferation, and sclerosis were striking features. This appears to be a new entity, and reasons are given for separating this disease from other pseudotumourous lymph node disorders associated with dysimmunity.
