This study was undertaken to define the natural history and treatment results of patients with primary breast non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Twelve female patients who had been followed at Hacettepe University Hospital between 1973 and 1997 were retrospectively evaluated. All patients presented with breast masses (6 in the right breast and 6 in the left) that had recently enlarged. The most common histologic subtype was diffuse, small cleaved-cell lymphoma. Chemotherapy regimens were employed in… Expand
Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma of the Breast: Report of Five Cases and Review of the Literature
TLDR
The treatment and the prognosis of breast lymphomas were not different from the currently indicated for nodal NHL with the same stage and histological subtype, and the patients were alive other than one who had been diagnosed with periphe- ral T-cell lymphoma just after pregnancy and showed resistance to the applied treatment. Expand
Breast Lymphoma: Favorable Prognosis after Treatment with Standard Combination Chemotherapy
TLDR
The results indicate that breast lymphoma is not associated with an inferior outcome when treated with standard CHOP-based chemotherapy. Expand
Primary non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma of the breast: eight-year follow-up experience
TLDR
Chinese patients with PNHLB have early occurrence in lifespan and radiation confers a better local control, and international prognostic index (IPI) score and bilateral breast involvement were two independent prognostic factors for survival. Expand
Primary Breast Lymphoma: An Uncommon but Curable Disease
TLDR
Considering that aggressive NHL is very sensitive to chemotherapy, mastectomy should be avoided to preserve the quality of life of these patients, once surgery does not change the good prognosis of PBL. Expand
Analysis of 31 cases of primary breast lymphoma: the effect of nodal involvement and microvascular density.
TLDR
Nodal status predicts the outcome and guides the use of radiation and chemotherapy, and patients with high MVD measured in the microenvironment had worse survival overall than PBL patients with low expression. Expand
Primary malignant lymphoma of the breast: a study of 15 cases and review of the Chinese literature
TLDR
The size of tumors and treatment pattern (single or multimodality) were significant prognostic factors in predicting the survival time, but the location of the tumor at initial presentation and the age of the patients were not. Expand
Primary breast lymphoma: Long-term treatment outcomeand prognosis
TLDR
It is concluded that younger age and elevated LDH were apparent characters of the patients in this study and IPI excluding stage was a valuable prognostic factor and combined radiotherapy and chemotherapy appeared to be important for treatment. Expand
Primary Breast Lymphoma: The Role of Mastectomy and the Importance of Lymph Node Status
TLDR
A database comprised of all reported cases of primary breast lymphoma that include treatment and follow-up information published during the last 3 decades found nodal status predicts outcome and guides optimal use of radiation and chemotherapy. Expand
Lymphoma of the breast in a male patient
TLDR
It is reported that 18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET)/CT could be used for staging of disease and assessing treatment response in a patient with primary breast marginal zone lymphoma. Expand
Radiotherapy of stage IEA primary breast lymphoma: case report.
TLDR
The advantage of applying the asymmetric collimator jaw opening in breast radiotherapy is the instant reduction of the dose at margin fields, resulting in both the protection of neighboring lung parenchyma and the good coverage of planned target volume. Expand

TLDR
Primary mammary lymphoma is an aggressive disease, with a high predilection for the right breast, and in spite of various therapies, only three patients survived 5 years. Expand
Non‐Hodgkin's Lymphoma Involving the Breast
TLDR
This study failed to demonstrate a morphologic difference between primary or secondary lymphomas of the breast and suggests that breast lymphomas differ from other extranodal lymphomas in that the latter are frequently low grade. Expand

TLDR
The distribution of NHL according to grade and stage was similar to that in western societies, while constitutional symptoms and lymphomas of the small intestine including immunoproliferative small intestinal disease were more common in Turkey. Expand

TLDR
Although primary lymphoma of the breast is compatible with long‐term survival, a significant number of patients eventually die of their disease, as with other extranodal lymphomas, survival rate appears most related to stage of disease. Expand
