Lymphoma, diffuse is the most common type of lymphoma seen in autopsy specimens in the United States, although cases of diffuse lymphomas of other types, such as follicular lymphomas, SLLs, and mantle-cell lymphomas, are likely to be under-reported.
Treatment for lymphoma, diffuse commonly includes chemotherapy (95% of patients), radiotherapy (89%) and other treatment with steroids (87%). There are very limited therapies available for lymphoma, diffuse to reduce symptoms and to improve survival.
The most accurate prediction of death in the long term for patients with NHL and DLBCL is based on a three-combination model incorporating the presence of B symptoms at diagnosis, the stage at diagnosis, and serum lactate dehydrogenase levels at diagnosis. Survival is significantly influenced by the presence of B symptoms.
There is no evidence of benefit in diffuse lymphoma patients with a first-line treatment of rituximab in combination with high-dose chemotherapy. There is no evidence of benefit for chemotherapy in patients with a first-line treatment of rituximab. There is no evidence of benefit of radiotherapy in combination with high-dose chemotherapy. Overall, there was no statistically significant impact.
Recent findings shows for the first time in the literature that in some subtypes of diffuse large B cell lymphomas a complete remission can be obtained, implying that in rare cases a potential cure is possible. The prognosis of this type of cancer is poor, since patients often relapse and succumb quickly to aggressive relapse. Patients with DLBCL, diffuse must therefore be evaluated aggressively and early, to obtain better chances of complete remission. Treatment options, which are in general currently considered effective for other B cell lymphomas, may need to be modified to attain the desired outcome for DLBCL diffuse.
Lymphoma diffuse is most commonly associated with: a swollen neck (83%) and/or adenopathy, enlarged liver (83%), and/or enlarged spleen (50%), enlarged bone or other sites (44%), and/or anemia (32%); (36% of patients had none of these signs); and a palpable spleen or enlarged kidney (34%). The lymphoma diffuse is most commonly associated with: a non-B\nl lymphoma (75%).
The case presented illustrates that patients with lymphoma, diffuse type may present with unusual medical and surgical manifestations in addition to their usual cancer symptoms. Lymphoma, diffuse type, like lymphoma, follicular, is a highly aggressive disease, and this patient had a very poor prognosis despite receiving chemotherapy and hematological remission. It is possible the aggressive nature of the lymphoma, diffuse type, diffuse lymphoma, was the cause of these presentations. Finally, this case demonstrates that more aggressive diagnostic and clinical assessments prior to beginning treatment are necessary to allow for appropriate treatment.
Only 2 case series have been found in the literature since 1990 concerning treatment options for diffuse lymphoma, and their results have shown no significant difference in treatment protocols. As such, it is recommended that all lymphoma, diffuse be included in future meta-analyses of treatment research, since it remains, for example, the most common form of lymphoma. Clinically, however, there are no more treatments for this form of lymphoma, unless the patient is eligible to participate in clinical trials.

These data suggest that the primary cause of diffuse NHL is not due to infection with EBV or HLV, as previously suggested. Rather, it may be an autoimmune disorder occurring as a side effect of other autoimmunities.
Vaccine induced potent protective immunity as seen in vaccinated children was not seen in the non-vaccinated individuals. In a large group of young children vaccinated with PCV13 a high rate of serious complications and death was also observed at a rate statistically higher than in non vaccinated group. There were no serious adverse events in this study which had been reported in a number of earlier studies. PCV13 is safe and effective for the treatment of uncomplicated childhood pneumonia in high burden settings.
Results from a recent clinical trial suggested that lymphoma, diffuse, run in families is more common than generally reported. Considering the possible high incidence of lymphoma, we suggest close follow-up in family members with lymphoma, especially those aged >50 years.
