From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the immunoglobulin receptor superfamily and is one of several Fc receptor-like glycoproteins clustered on the long arm of chromosome 1. The encoded protein has four extracellular C2-type immunoglobulin domains, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic domain that contains three immune-receptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs. This protein may play a role in the function of memory B-cells in the epithelia. Aberrations in the chromosomal region encoding this gene are associated with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2009]
May function as an inhibitor of the B-cell receptor signaling. May function in the B-cell-mediated immune response.

A chromosomal aberration involving FCRL4 is found in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHG). Translocation t(1;1)(p36.3; q21.1-2).
A chromosomal aberration involving FCRL4 is found in multiple myeloma (MM). Translocation t(1;14)(q21;q32) that forms a FCRL4-IGHA1 fusion protein.
