Line 1: Line 1:
 +B-cell lymphoma ​ any in a large group of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphomas characterized by malignant transformation of the B lymphocytes.
  
 +Lymphoma Types (not all inclusive)
 +
 +adult T-cell lymphoma , adult T-cell leukemia/​lymphoma see under leukemia.
 +B-cell lymphoma ​ any in a large group of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphomas characterized by malignant transformation of the B lymphocytes.
 +
 +B-cell monocytoid lymphoma ​ a low-grade lymphoma in which cells resemble those of hairy cell leukemia.
 +
 +Burkitt'​s lymphoma ​ a form of small noncleaved-cell lymphoma, usually occurring in Africa, manifested usually as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass; Epstein-Barr virus has been implicated as a causative agent.
 +
 +centrocytic lymphoma ​ mantle cell l.
 +convoluted T-cell lymphoma ​ lymphoblastic lymphoma with markedly convoluted nuclei.
 +
 +cutaneous T-cell lymphoma ​ a group of lymphomas exhibiting (1) clonal expansion of malignant T lymphocytes arrested at varying stages of differentiation of cells committed to the series of helper T cells, and (2) malignant infiltration of the skin, which may be the chief or only manifestation of disease.
 +
 +diffuse lymphoma ​ in an older classification method, malignant lymphoma in which the neoplastic cells diffusely infiltrate the entire lymph node, without any definite organized pattern.
 +
 +follicular lymphoma ​ any of several types of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into nodules or follicles.
 +
 +follicular center cell lymphoma ​ B-cell lymphoma classified by the similarity of the cell size and nuclear characteristics to those of normal follicular center cells; the four previous subtypes are scattered among several ​
 +
 +types of follicular and diffuse lymphomas.
 +
 +giant follicular lymphoma ​ follicular l.
 +
 +granulomatous lymphoma ​ Hodgkin'​s disease.
 +
 +histiocytic lymphoma ​ a rare type of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma characterized by the presence of large tumor cells resembling histiocytes morphologically but considered to be of lymphoid origin.
 +Hodgkin'​s lymphoma ​ see under disease.
 +
 +intermediate lymphocytic lymphoma , lymphocytic lymphoma, intermediately differentiated mantle cell l.
 +large cell lymphoma ​ any of several types of lymphoma characterized by the formation of one or more types of malignant large lymphocytes,​ such as large cleaved or noncleaved follicular center cells, in a diffuse pattern.
 +large cell, immunoblastic lymphoma ​ a highly malignant type of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma characterized by large lymphoblasts (B or T lymphoblasts or a mixture) resembling histiocytes and having a diffuse pattern of infiltration.
 +Lennert'​s lymphoma ​ a type of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma with a high content of epithelioid histiocytes and frequently with bone marrow involvement.
 +
 +lymphoblastic lymphoma ​ a highly malignant type of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma composed of a diffuse, relatively uniform proliferation of cells with round or convoluted nuclei and scanty cytoplasm.
 +malignant lymphoma ​ a group of malignancies characterized by the proliferation of cells native to the lymphoid tissues, i.e., lymphocytes,​ histiocytes,​ and their precursors and derivatives;​ the group is divided into two major clinicopathologic categories: Hodgkin'​s disease and non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma.
 +
 +mantle cell lymphoma , mantle zone lymphoma a rare form of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small lymphocytes and small cleaved cells.
 +
 +marginal zone lymphoma ​ a group of related B-cell neoplasms that involve the lymphoid tissues in the marginal zone, the patchy area outside the follicular mantle zone.
 +
 +
 +mixed lymphocytic-histiocytic lymphoma ​ non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma characterized by a mixed population of cells, the smaller cells resembling lymphocytes and the larger ones histiocytes.
 +nodular lymphoma ​ follicular l.
 +
 +non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma ​ a heterogeneous group of malignant lymphomas, the only common feature being an absence of the giant Reed-Sternberg cells characteristic of Hodgkin'​s disease.
 +
 +plasmacytoid lymphocytic lymphoma ​ a rare variety of small lymphocytic lymphoma in which the predominant cell type is the plasma cell.
 +
 +primary effusion lymphoma ​ a B-cell lymphoma associated with human herpesvirus 8 infection, characterized by the occurrence of lymphomatous effusions in body cavities without the presence of a solid tumor.
 +
 +small B-cell lymphoma ​ the usual type of small lymphocytic lymphoma, having predominantly B lymphocytes.
 +small cleaved cell lymphoma ​ a group of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphomas characterized by the formation of malignant small cleaved follicular center cells, with either a follicular or diffuse pattern.
 +
 +small lymphocytic lymphoma ​ a diffuse form of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma representing the neoplastic proliferation of well-differentiated B lymphocytes,​ with focal lymph node enlargement or generalized lymphadenopathy and splenomegaly.
 +small lymphocytic T-cell lymphoma ​ small lymphocytic lymphoma that has predominantly T lymphocytes.
 +
 +small noncleaved cell lymphoma ​ a highly malignant type of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphoma characterized by the formation of small noncleaved follicular center cells, usually in a diffuse pattern.
 +
 +T-cell lymphomas ​ a heterogeneous group of lymphoid neoplasms representing malignant transformation of the T lymphocytes.
 +
 +U-cell lymphoma , undefined lymphoma a category of non-Hodgkin'​s lymphomas that cannot be classified into a definite type by either morphologic or known immunocytochemical markers.
 +undifferentiated lymphoma
