Flashcards in Lymphoma Deck (40):
What is the 7th most common cause of cancer death
Lymphoma has a predominance for M/F?
Although females are more common for follicular lymphoma
At what age can lymphoma occur
avg age is 42
3% of what pts will develop lymphoma
Name two probable contributors of why there is an increase in incidence of AIDS pt developing lymphoma
phenoxyherbicide use and aging of pop.
80% of lymphomas are from what origin
What pathogen is associated with Hodgkin's
What is the gold standard for lymphoma diagnosis
needle biopsy can be used to determine if a mass is lymphomatous BUT to see the histo of it excisional is best
What 3 things do clinicians and pathologist have to communicate clearly about
1. certainty of diagnosis
2. quality of material available for interpretation
3. clinical course going to be taken
What is the most characteristic feature of B-cell lymphoma
painless LN enlargement
can have a "rubbry" feel
What is the predominant classification of lymphoma
what is nodal presentation
invovlemnt of LN and other lymphoid structures like the liver and spleen
what is the extra-nodal presentation
rarer and important to recognize bc treatment may be site specific
the Ann Arbor staging stages what?
Ann Arbor staging is ...
limited and extensive
Why is Ann Arbor staging used
to differentiate btwn available treatment options
what often has microscopic disease at distant sites demonstrated by subsequent relapse
clinically localized low grade lymphoma
what has a greater probability of being pathologically localized
higher grade clinically localized lymphoma
it can also turn widespread but if diagnosed quickly and treated it can be cured
what is the main reason staging procedures are chosen
to guide therapy selection
what was the main criteria of the NCI working formulation classifcation
which classification system utilized immunophenotypic and genetic data
REAL and WHO
