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:
Lymphomas represent one of the commonest malignancies.
Adcetris is being evaluated broadly in more than 70 clinical trials in CD30-expressing lymphomas. These include three completed phase 3 trials: ECHELON-2 in frontline peripheral T-cell lymphomas, ECHELON-1 in previously untreated Hodgkin lymphoma, and ALCANZA in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
(14,22) Follicular lymphomas, including PCFCL, frequently produce false-negative results.
Since more cats are being tested and isolated if positive or vaccinated if negative, the incidence of mediastinal and multicentric lymphomas in cats has decreased, but intestinal lymphomas have picked up.
Lymphoma of the breast is rare, accounting for approximately 2% of all extranodal lymphomas and ~0.04-0.5% of all breast malignancies.
(24-26) These reactions tend to occur in adjacent lymph nodes or lymph nodes that are "down-stream drainage" areas from the site of lymphoma. (22) Although rare in most malignancies, the sarcoid-like reaction has been reported in up to 13.8% of Hodgkin's lymphomas.
Primary gastrointestinal lymphoma accounts for 30-40% of all extranodal lymphomas but for only 1-8% of all gastrointestinal malignancies [1].
Lymphomas are malignant tumors that affect the immune system, most commonly, the lymph nodes.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma accounts for 40 to 50% of all lymphomas in children and adolescents.
Lymphomas are solid malignant tumors having a wide spectrum of clinical and pathological features.
The results of this study showed that RPF occurred at mean age of 56.7 [+ or -] 6.2 years with a male-to-female ratio of 2.2:1.0, similar to findings in previous study.[sup][15] However, this study showed no significant difference in terms of mean age between patients with RPF and lymphoma. Lymphomas are classified into HD and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and the former occurs predominantly in younger patients.[sup][14] A previous study showed that the mean age of patients with lymphoma is generally greater than that of patients with RPF.[sup][15] We speculated that the difference between our findings and those of the previous reports was related to our inclusion of HD patients into the lymphoma group in our study.
