Crystal-storing histiocytosis (CSH) is a rare disorder characterized by the accumulation of crystalized immunoglobulins within the cytoplasm of histiocytes. It is often associated with an underlying lymphoproliferative or plasma cell disorder. Most patients with CSH are asymptomatic in regard to the disease and are incidentally discovered. Herein we present cyto-histologic correlation of a rare example of CSH presenting with a two-year interval between original diagnosis of CSH and confirmation of a low-grade B-cell lymphoma.
