Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (0)

The Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) are a diverse group of hematologic cancers which encompass any lymphoma other than Hodgkin's Lymphoma.[1]

Lymphoma is a type of cancer derived from lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell. Many subtypes of non-Hodgkin lymphoma have been described. Non-Hodgkin lymphomas are treated by combinations of chemotherapy, monoclonal antibodies, immunotherapy, radiation, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma are classified according to the 1982 Working Formulation, now considered obsolete. Current classifications do not separate Hodgkin from Non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
