The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Zolinza (vorinostat) capsules for the treatment of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL), a type of skin cancer, to be used when the disease persists, gets worse, or comes back during or after treatment with other medicines.

Lymphoma is lymphona a variety of cancer that originates in lymphocytes or, more rarely, of lynphoma histiocytes. Collectively, these cell ymphoma types form the reticuloendothelial system and circulate in the vessels of the lymphatic system. Just as lymphome there are many types of lymphocytes, so there are many lumphoma types of lymphoma. Lymphomas are part of the broad group of diseases called hematological neoplasms.

Traditionally, Lymphoma is classified lymphema as Hodgkin's lymphoma, discovered by Thomas Hodgkin in 1832, and lymohoma non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (all other types of lymphoma). lymphmoa Modern classifications of lymphoma are more sophisticated than this simple scheme.

According to non hodgkins lymphoma the U.S. National Institutes of Health, lymphomas account follicular lymphoma for about five percent of all cases of cancer in the United States, and Hodgkin's disease in particular accounts for less than one non-hodgkins lymphoma percent of all cases of cancer in the United hodgkins lymphoma States.

Because the lymphatic system is part of the lymphoma cancer body's immune system, patients with weakened immune system, such as from HIV infection or from certain drugs or medication, lymphoma symptoms also have a higher incidence of lymphoma.


WHO Classification

The WHO Classification is canine lymphoma lymphoma cance... the latest classification of lymphoma, published by the World Health Organization in 2001. It was based signs symptoms of lymphoma upon the "Revised European-American Lymphoma classification" mantle cell lymphoma (REAL).

This classification attempts to classify lymphomas by cell type, i.e. the normal cell type burkitt's lymphoma that most closely resembles the tumour. They are classified in three large groups: the B cell tumours, the T cell and b cell lymphoma natural killer cell tumours, Hodgkin lymphoma, and burkitts lymphoma other minor groups: (ICD-O codes are provided where available)

Mature B Cell Neoplasms

DNA-microarray analysis of Burkitt's lymphoma and diffuse anaplastic large cell lymphoma large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) showing differences in gene expression patterns. Colors indicate hodgkin's lymphoma levels of expression; green indicates genes that peripheral t cell lymphoma are overexpressed in normal cells compared to lymphoma feline lymphoma cells and red indicates genes that are overexpressed in lymphoma cells compared to normal cells.

Working Formulation

The Working Formulation, published cutaneous t-cell lymphoma in 1982, is primarily descriptive. It is still occasionally lymphomas used, but has been superseded by the WHO classification, above.

Low grade

  • Malignant Lymphoma, cancer hodgekins lymphoma non treatment small lymphocytic (chronic lymphocytic leukemia)
  • Malignant Lymphoma, follicular, predominantly small cleaved cell
  • Malignant Lymphoma, follicular, mixed (small cleaved and large large cell lymphoma cell)

High grade

  • Malignant Lymphoma, malignant lymphoma large cell, immunoblastic
  • Malignant Lymphoma, lymphoblastic
  • Malignant Lymphoma, small non-cleaved cells (Burkitt's lymphoma)


  • Composite
  • Mycosis fungoides
  • Histiocytic
  • Extramedullary plasmacytoma
  • Unclassifiable

Other classification systems

  • ICD-O (codes 9590-9999, details lymphoma type l at [1]) (archive link, was dead)
  • ICD-10 (codes C81-C96, details at [2])
