Hairy Cell Leukemia Picture

Hairy cell leukemia is a rare form of leukemia. Abnormal white blood cells bearing hair-like projections are seen on blood film examination, hence the name. The spleen is frequently enlarged and the blood cell numbers are usually markedly decreased. Hairy Cell Leukemia is caused by the abnormal growth of B cells. The cells look "hairy" under the microscope because they have fine projections coming from their surface.
