Reference Entry
A definition of the term non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is presented. It refers to a lymphoma other than Hodgkin's disease. Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas may be classified into nodular or diffuse tumor patterns and by cell type. They can be also be classified into high, intermediate, and low grade malignancy and into cytologic subtypes.

    A definition of the term "Lymphoma" is presented. Lymphomas are diverse neoplasms that begin by the malignant transformation, usually of a T cell, B cell, or natural killer cell, in the lymphatic system. These diseases result from damage to the cell's DNA that results in uncontrolled and...

    Intravascular large B cell lymphoma (IVLBCL) is a rare cause of pyrexia of unknown origin. Because of its protean clinical manifestations, diagnosis is elusive and is often made postmortem. We report here a case of IVLBCL that evaded diagnosis despite multiple investigations in vivo for pyrexia...

    Previous epidemiological studies showed an increased risk for the development of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) after adjuvant therapy or simultaneous discovery of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). However, clinicopathological features of NHL complicated by RCC are not well known. We summarized...

    Several clinical prognostic factors have been identified that predict treatment outcome in patients with diffuse large cell lymphomas. An International Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Prognostic Index (IPI) has been recently formulated. We tried to identify the clinical prognostic factors that...

    Background: The c-myb oncogene is a transcription factor that regulates proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis of haematopoietic cells and activated T cells by binding to promoter sequences of such genes as c-myc or bcl-2 that are expressed in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Objective:...

    We report the case of a 41-year-old patient with an aggressive cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) initially presenting on histology as lymphocytic vasculitis. On repeated histological examination and by molecular biology work-up, the diagnosis of an unclassifiable CTCL could eventually be...

    Virus host evasion genes are ready-made tools for gene manipulation and therapy. In this work we have assessed the impact in vivo of the evasion gene A238L of the African Swine Fever Virus, a gene which inhibits transcription mediated by both NF-κB and NFAT. The A238L gene has been...

    The development of xanthomatous changes in lesions of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) is a rare event. It is usually observed in regressing skin tumours or plaques spontaneously or after a specific treatment. The pathogenetic mechanisms implicated in these changes are poorly...
