A lymphoma which demonstrates transitional morphologic and immunophenotypic features between classical Hodgkin's lymphoma (CHL) and large B-cell
lymphoma (diffuse large B cell lymphoma and Burkitt's lymphoma), mostly presenting with a mediastinal but occasionally with a peripheral lymph node disease is termed as grey zone lymphoma (GZL) as shown in figure 2.1,2 The terms "gray zone or grey zone or unclassifiable or indeterminate or mediastinal grey zone lymphoma (MGZL)" are synonymous and are used interchangeably.3,4 The outcome of these cases may differ from DLBCL and CHL.5 These lymphomas may show three types of features:
Diffuse large B-cell
lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and accounts for 30-40% of all NHLs .
Nonetheless, it can show a locally aggressive course if left untreated, (3,6,7) and rare transformation to diffuse large B-cell
lymphoma has been suggested.
In recent years, with the use of treatments containing rituximab in B-cell
lymphoma patients with HsAg positivity and resolved HBV infection, a serious increase in the rate of HBV reactivation has been observed (12).
