Adult Hodgkin's Lymphoma (PDQÂ®): Treatment
More than 75% of all newly diagnosed patients with adult Hodgkinâ€™s lymphoma (HL) can be cured with combination chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. National mortality has fallen more rapidly for adult HL than for any other malignancy.
Prognosis for a given patient depends on several factors. The...
Adult Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (PDQÂ®): Treatment
The NHLs are a heterogeneous group of lymphoproliferative malignancies with differing patterns of behavior and responses to treatment.
Like Hodgkinâ€™s lymphoma, NHL usually originates in lymphoid tissues and can spread to other organs. NHL, however, is much less predictable than Hodgkinâ€™s lymphoma and has a far...

Radiology case 421-341 A 45 year old man with anaemia.
There is a patchy destructive process, prodominantly in the medulla of the distal metaphysis of the right humerus. The process undermines and thins the cortex.
Features in the image
Immature skeleton. There are multiple destructive foci in the proximal femora and adjoining pelvis.
Our records do not indicate whether there were any Thymus enlargement, which would be common in a child with this condition. Such diffuse bone involvement is a feature of this disorder which occurs mostly...
Radiology case 48-342 Man aged 47yr with back pain and night sweats.
There is a low density area in the glenoid of the left scapula. It is irregular and not sharply defined. A more subtle zone of patchy loss of bone density lies in the posterior margin of the left 1st...
Radiology case 472-342 A young adult male with night fevers and lymphadenopathy.
There is a local soft tissue thickening of the retro-sternal soft tissue stripe. The curve is centred on the second segment of the sternum.
Radiology case 321-342 Young adult male with backache and enlarged palpable lymph glands in the neck and axillae.
There is a para-spinal shadow separate from the the silhouette of the overlying heart density and without loss of normal lower lobe vessel silhouettes. There is no rib crowding. The centre of radius...
Radiology case 4411-342 Clinical presentation:
Man of 20 years with pain in his left side.
There is a purely lytic area in the left ilium with a fairly narrow zone of transition between normal and abnormal bone.
Radiology case 448-341 Adult male with anaemia.
The particular feature is the low density of pubis and sacrum with relative sparing of ilia and femora. Patchy bone loss can be seen in both ischia and the proximal metaphyses of both femora, coarsening the visible bone architecture. There is a fairly well-defined...
Primary lymphoma of bone is an uncommon disease and must be separated from skeletal involvement in systemic lymphoma. The former is stage IE (extranodal, see Staging) disease and may present to the orthopedic surgeon prior to biopsy as a solitary bone lesion simulating a bone sarcoma. The latter, by definition,...
Radiology case 48--6572 Clinical presentation:
52 year old male with anaemia.
There is Splenomegaly. The soft tissue density of the spleen extends to the iliac crest. There is a variable increase in density of the axial skeleton and adjacent ilium with coarsening of the visible bone architecture. The vertebral bodies are involved,...
