DLBCLs thus can be divided by GEP or various IHC algorithms into GCB-like and activated B-cell (ABC)-like subtypes [Table 1], with the latter having a significantly poorer outcome than the GCB group.[7] These molecular subtypes are associated with different outcomes, even after the introduction of immunochemotherapy.[8] The characteristic features of GCB and ABC DLBCL are tabulated in [Table 1].
The treatment modalities for PG-DLBCL have shifted from surgery as a mainstay of therapy to a more conservative approach using systemic immunochemotherapy with or without radiotherapy in the recent decades [1, 3, 6, 7, 9].
In addition, recent progress in lymphoma immunochemotherapy means that patients may have a better outcome if treated using a multidisciplinary approach comprising a monoclonal antibody (rituximab, which is specific for CD20-positive B lymphoma cells), less intensive chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgical intervention (where needed) [10-13].
Treatment with immunochemotherapy is offered for most patients, while radiation therapy and stem cell transplantation are used in selected patients [8].
