Eyup me owd Flowers (Yorkshire slang),

I'd like to try and get a consensus on two related topics -

1) Is CD19 positivity in plasma cells definitive of Myeloma or can you get
reactive plasma cells showing the same ?

2) Does the list believe that even a small number of these cells in bone
marrow justifies the diagnosis of Myeloma when clinical evidence (or rather,
lack of it) would normally support MGUS ?

I have my own thoughts on the matter but I thought it would be interesting
to get wider opinions.
