Disease in which malignant cells form in the lymph system. There are several types of lymphoma including:
Adult non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
Childhood non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
Primary central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma
Type of B-cell lymphoma first described by Dennis Burkitt who was working in Africa at the time. The disease was common to the children of that region. Research later showed that these children had been infected with the Epstein-Barr virus. Because these children had lowered immune systems to begin with in some cases the virus they were infected with changed the B-lymphocytes into cancerous cells.
Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma is a general term for lymphomas of the skin including mycosis fungoides, Sézary syndrome, lymphomatoid papulosis, cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma, adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma, peripheral T-cell lymphoma, lymphomatoid granulomatosis, granulomatous slack skin disease, and pagetoid reticulosis.
