Hope this helps.: Hcl 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. Hcl usually leads to low numbers of normal blood cells. The cause of this disease is unknown. It affects men more often than women. The average age of diagnosis is 55.
