Lukemia/lymphoma (CLL/SLL) Chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocitic lymphoma
Lymphoma Cause of Death End-organ failure, critical structure obstruction, tumor complications
WHO Classification of lymphoid malignancies (prevalence) Non-Hodgkin's (B-cell,70%; T-cell/NK-cell, 20%) Hodgkin's (10-20%)
Blood Smear for Non-Hodgkin's (general, indolent vs. aggressive) Homogeneous tumor cell population, small mature (indolent). Large and immature, various states of mitosis (aggressive)
Blood Smear for Hodgkin's Heterogeneous cell population, majority benign cells, lymphoma cells are bi nucleated (Reed-Sternberg Cells), background cells are benign,
Age distribution Hodgkin's vs. Non-Hodgkin's Hogdkin's is bimodal (25 vs. >50). Non-Hodgkin's (>50)
Lymphoma staging 1. Single side of diaphragm. 2. Multipule one side of diaphragm. 3. Both sides of diaphragm. 4. Dissiminated. For B add fever (37.5) weight loss (10%), night sweat.
Diagnosis tools for Hodgkin's Morphology, immunophenotyping, genetic tensing, clinical data, immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics
Follicle; including zones. Marginal, mantel, germinal (dark, light, apical light)
B-cell maturation process Lymphoblasts, virgin B-cell (prefollicular). Centroblasts -> centrocytes -> secondary B blasts (Follicular) Plasma cells or memory B cells (Postfollicular).
Neoplasms of precursor, pre-GC, GC, post-GC Precursor: ALL Pre-GC: CLL/SLL, Mantle cell GC: Follicular, Burkitt, DLBCL, Hodgkin's Post GC: Marginal & MALT, lymphoplasmacytic (LPL), some CLL/SLL, some DLBCL, plasma cell myeloma
Indolent vs. aggressive Indolent: Small cell lymphocytic, follicular, marginal zone, mucosa associated lymphoid tissue, splenic, nodal Aggressive: Diffuse large cell, mantle cell
CLL/SLL (age, distribution, T or B, blood smear, indolent vs. aggressive) Older adults >50years (65% of all lymphoma, up to 10% of general population, 90% of cLPD). B-cell (common), T-cell uncommon, small mature B lymphocytes (clonal), present as leukemia or lymphoma, indolent.
CLL/SLL clinical course (platelet/neutrophil/RBC, organ involvement, immunoglobulin suppression vs proliferation vs. clonal, transformation to...) anemia, neutropinea, thrombocytopnia, spleen/lymph enlargement, immunoglobulin suppression, autoimmune hemolytic anemia, transform to prolymphocytic leukemia (PLL; similar to ALL) or high grade lymphoma (richter's transformation)

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
