  • Non-Hodgkin LymphomaHodgkin LymphomaMore frequent involvement of multiple peripheralnodesMore often localized to a single axial group ofnodes (cervical, mediastinal, para-aortic)Noncontiguous spreadOrderly spread by contiguityMesenteric nodes and Waldeyer ring commonlyinvolvedMesenteric nodes and Waldeyer ring rarelyinvolvedExtranodal involvement commonExtranodal involvement uncommonTable 12-10. Clinical Differences Between Hodgkin and Non-Hodgkin LymphomasSource: Kumar et al: Robbins Basic Pathology Book 8EClassification
  • • Age: The disease peaks at ages 15 to 40 and at 55 and older.• Exposure to environmental poisons, such as Agent Orange• Family history of the disease, although lymphoma has only a weak geneticlink• Gender: Hodgkin lymphoma is more common in males than females• History of infectious mononucleosis or Epstein-Barr virus• Prolonged use of human growth hormone• Weakened immune system, including infection with HIVSource: http://www.kucancercenter.org/cancer-information/specialties-and-treatment/lymphoma/preventionRF - Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • • Age: The likelihood of getting NHL increases as you get older.• Bacterial infection: Infection with Helicobacter pylori increases the risk oflymphoma involving the stomach.• Gender: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is more common in males than females.• Exposure to farming chemicals or fertilizers, chemicals used to dissolverubbers or glues, chemicals used to make rubber products, asbestos andarsenic increases the risk of developing NHL.• Weakened immune system: NHL is most common among those who have animpaired immune system or a severe autoimmune disease. It also occursamong those who take medicines to suppress the immune system followingan organ transplant.• Viral infection: Infection with Epstein-Barr virus or Human ImmunodeficiencyVirus (HIV) increases the risk of developing NHL.RF – Non-Hodgkin LymphomaSource: http://www.kucancercenter.org/cancer-information/specialties-and-treatment/lymphoma/prevention
  • Source: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/201886-overview#aw2aab6b2b3Etiology - Hodgkin Lymphoma• EBV, may be involved in the pathogenesis. In as many as50% of cases, the tumor cells are EBV-positive.• Patients with HIV infection have a higher incidence ofHodgkin lymphoma compared with the populationwithout HIV infection.Infectiousagents• Approximately 1% of patients with Hodgkinlymphoma have a family history of the disease.Geneticpredisposition• May have a protective effect againstlymphomagenesis through mechanisms that may beindependent of vitamin DUV radiationexposure
  • Source: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/201886-overview#aw2aab6b2b3Etiology – Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma• Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1(HTLV-1) , Hepatitis C virus (HCV), Kaposi sarcoma–associated herpesvirus (KSHV) , Helicobacter pylori infection.Infectious agents• The t(14;18)(q32;q21) translocation is the most commonchromosomal abnormality associated with NHL.Chromosomal translocations• chemicals (eg, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, organicchemicals, wood preservatives, dusts, hair dye), chemotherapy, andradiation exposure.Environmental factors• Congenital immunodeficiency states, AIDS, Celiac disease.Immunodeficiency states• Sjögren syndrome and Hashimoto thyroiditis.Chronic inflammation
  • Etiology – QWhich of these agents willnot cause HL?• HIV Infection• Genetic predisposition• UV radiation• Non of the above
