Question

I know nothing can really be stated. Just looking for opinion.  Does this sound like lympoma?  Highly elevated liver enzymes, pancytopenia, intermittent fever, dry cough at night.  Within 1 month, pleural effusion, Ct scan showed low density lesions in liver (radiologist thinks infecition), spleen.  Also dilated small bowel loops, prominent ovaries with small cysts, infiltrate in lungs (radiologist thinks infection).  Many infections ruled out.  Also enlarged pancreas and gall bladder, extreme acites (ascites) and leg edema.  Enlarged abdominal lymph nodes.  LAP test negative.  Flow cytometry  shows no lympoma or leuk.  No cd30 or cd20 found in staining,  though another lab said positive.  Many additional symptoms including acute resp ditress.  One lab says MPO neg., another pos.  High b12 levels, extremely high ferritan level.  Also developed DIC.   Lymph node biopsy shows lympoma though not sure what kind (ran out of material).
