Abstract

Non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHLs) may be classified on the basis of morphology, natural history, and immunophenotypic and molecular characteristics. These guidelines were developed for more common NHL histologic types, including chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and for less common entities with unique natural histories and therapies, such as marginal zone lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, and highly aggressive lymphoma subtypes, including Burkitt's, and lymphoblastic lymphomas and AIDS-related B-cell lymphomas. Certain components of the diagnosis and therapy of the various NHLs are similar. In all cases, an accurate pathologic diagnosis must first be made.
