In brief: Very aggressive

One categorization of the many types of lymphoma is: indolent, aggresssive, very aggressive.
Brukitt lymphoma (bl) is a very aggressive lymphoma. It proliferates (grows) very quickly. Intensive therapy is needed including intrathecal (cns fluid) chemotherapy. However, it usually responds quickly to treatment. That can cause rapid tumor death and tumor lysis syndrome (tls).
