Background: The aetiology of lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma/Walden-str ̈om’s Macroglobulinemia (LPL/WM) remains largely to be elucidated.Emerging evidence supports the role for repeated antigenic stimulationin the development of LPL/WM. Owing to the rarity of LPL/WM, fewpopulation-based studies have been conducted investigating exposure toinfections and subsequent risk of malignant transformation to LPL/WM.
