Indolent diffuse histiocytic lymphoma with sclerosis and chylous effusions.

Abstract

A case of diffuse histiocytic lymphoma with sclerosis and chylous pleural and peritoneal effusions spanning four years from onset to diagnosis is presented. Treatment with combination chemotherapy and consolidative radiotherapy resulted in clinical improvement and the patient remains free of disease 14 months after stopping treatment. The problems of chylous effusions and the subgroup of diffuse histiocytic lymphoma with sclerosis are discussed.
