ARREDONDO BRUCE, Alfredo  y  AMORES CARRATE, Jacqueline. T-cells non Hodgkin’s lymphoma: a new vision. AMC [online]. 2009, vol.13, n.3. ISSN 1025-0255.

T-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHLs) are uncommon malignancies. The current classification WHO/EORTC recognizes 10 different clinic pathologic entities. These disorders have unique characteristics and require individualized diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Tremendous progress has been made in recent years in the understanding of the pathogenesis of these disorders. Specific chromosomal translocations and viral infections are now known to be associated with certain lymphomas. In this review, we describe their clinical and pathologic features. We also discuss the use of molecular studies in the diagnostic work-up of T-cell lymphomas. Because of the rarity of these disorders and the lack of well-designed clinical trials, the treatment of peripheral T-cell NHLs is often challenging. Additional studies are required to learn more about the biology of these diseases, which may lead to more optimal and possibly targeted therapies.

Palabras clave : T-cell non-Hodgkin´s lymphomas; chromosomal translocations.
