How do you treat non-hodgkin's natural killer t-cell lymphoma?

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. ...Read more

Is cutaneous t-cell lymphoma the same as non-hodgkin's lymphoma?

Is cutaneous t-cell lymphoma the same as non-hodgkin's lymphoma?

Not exactly...: Cutaneous t cell lymphoma (ctcl) is a disorder of a type of immune cell, the t cell. Hodgkin's disease is a cancer of b cells, another type of immune cell. Thus ctcl is technically a non-hodgkin's lymphoma. However, people typically use 'non-hodgkin's lymphoma' to describe other types of b cell cancers that do not fit the characteristics of hodgkin's disease. Talk with your doctor for more info. ...Read more

Can 2 biopsies done at same time rule out cutaneous t-cell lymphoma completely? If symptoms point to ctcl but biopsy was neg when should we re-biopsy?

Can 2 biopsies done at same time rule out cutaneous t-cell lymphoma completely? If symptoms point to ctcl but biopsy was neg when should we re-biopsy?

Not Completely: The average number of biopsies to completely diagnose CTCL is about 6. That said, if the type of CTCL is the common type, mycosis fungoides(MF), and not mimics of MF, then 1 or 2 biopsies could be diagnostic especially if typical patches, plaques of CTCL. If the latter, ancillary tests including molecular clonality T cell test are crucial for diagnosis excluding mimics. Rebiopsy in about 3 mos. ...Read more

Which is worse, b cell lymphoma or t cell lymphoma?

T-cell NHL: The prognosis for t-cell non-hodgkin's lymphoma (nhl) vs. B-cell nhl depends on multiple factors, but in general t-cell nhl has a worse prognosis. One reason is that b-cell, cd20+ nhl can be treated with the anti-cd20 monoclonal antibody Rituximab in addition to chemotherapy. We currently don't have such an effective, low toxicity antibody (biologic treatment) for t-cell nhl. ...Read more
