While similar to chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), it primarily is found in the lymph nodes, while CLL is more often found in bone marrow and blood.

It is usually CD5+ and CD10-.cite journal |author=Barekman CL, Aguilera NS, Abbondanzo SL |title=Low-grade B-cell lymphoma with coexpression of both CD5 and CD10. A report of 3 cases |journal=Arch.
