A non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was observed in a patient who had been treated for Hodgkin's disease (HD). The initial treatment consisted of radiotherapy alone, but following three subsequent relapses, both chemotherapy and radiotherapy were administered several times. Twenty years later, the biopsy of an isolated cervical lymph node revealed a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The histologic subtype was immunoblastic. Cytogenetic studies of the tumoral cells revealed a t(8;14)(q24;q32) translocation. At the… CONTINUE READING
