bcl2 rearrangement

we regularly assay for the t(14;18) rtanslocation which involves the
bcl2 oncogene and the IgH gene.  Our standard positive control is a PCR
product of approximately 230bp.  recently we obtained a patient sample
which gave a product of over 1000 bp.  
My question is: how big do they get?  is it possible that a false
negative could be obtained for very large and possibly non amplifiable
products.  Is there a diagnostic significance for very large rearranged

thanks for your help
