INTRODUCTION

The peripheral T cell lymphomas (PTCL) are a heterogeneous group of generally aggressive neoplasms that constitute less than 15 percent of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas in adults. (See "Classification of the hematopoietic neoplasms".)

Among these, in decreasing frequency of occurrence, are:

Peripheral T cell lymphoma, not otherwise specified

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma, primary systemic type

Angioimmunoblastic T cell lymphoma
