Testicular lymphoma is associated with a high incidence of extranodal
The GI tract is the most common site of extranodal
lymphoma, accounting for 40% of extranodal
The subtype distribution of PTCL is also significantly different between China and Western countries, in which extranodal
NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (ENKL), a subtype highly aggressive with very poor prognosis, to be the leading subtype in Chinese population.
Many affected patients present with nodal involvement, and there is also potential for extranodal
involvement of the liver, gastrointestinal tract, bone marrow, and/or skin.
In this short report, we present a patient with primary extranodal
non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of the colon who developed GBS during the disease course.
Approximately one third of non-Hodgkin lymphomas occur in extranodal
The patients were evaluated according to age, sex, stage, B symptoms, extranodal
involvement, and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level as well as immunohistochemically.
Histologic findings in lymph node are different from those seen in extranodal
This is defined as extranodal
lymphoma arising in the CNS in the absence of systemic disease.
Uniquely, although extranodal
sites of SHML are typically found in the head and neck, they rarely involve the salivary glands (1).
The clinical dilemma was as follows: was this (i) a systemic NHL with extranodal
involvement of the left breast; (ii) an overlooked primary breast lymphoma (PBL); or (iii) a misdiagnosed primary breast carcinoma?
In a subtype of the disease called extranodal
lymphoma, tumors arise in non-lymphoid organs, such as the tongue and tonsils.
