NK/T cell NHL: The treatment is largely determined by the extent of disease. Patients with localized stage, therapy would be combined radiation and chemotherapy. Patients with disseminated lymphoma, combination chemo would be recommended.. For most patients who achieve a partial response after induction therapy , a bone marrow transplant as consolidation would be recommended. Discuss with your oncologist.
