The immune system protects the body from foreign substances, infection, and diseases. The lymph system is made up of the following: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma can begin in B lymphocytes, T lymphocytes, or natural killer cells. This book provides clinical practitioners and the research community with detailed information on the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, taking into account the significant growth in knowledge including multiple therapeutic advances that have been achieved over the past years. The work is subdivided into epidemiology, pathogenesis, pathology, imaging, and therapy.

    Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a blood cancer that begins in the white blood cells called lymphocytes. It is sometimes called non-Hodgkin’s disease. It is one of the two main groups of lymphoma. The other group is Hodgkin lymphoma. Most commonly, non-Hodgkin lymphoma starts in a lymph node at one or more places in the body.   Lymphomas are a type of cancer that arises from malignancies are classified into Hodgkin lymphomas, which are characterized by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells, and non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs), which comprise all other types of are further classified according to the cell type, i.e., B cells, T cells, and natural killer (NK) cells, and tumor grade.

A doctor can tell the difference between Hodgkin's lymphoma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma by examining the cancer cells under a microscope.

If in examining the cells, the doctor detects the presence of a specific type of abnormal cell called a Reed-Sternberg cell, the lymphoma is classified as Hodgkin's.

Medical professionals are able to distinguish non-Hodgkin’s from Hodgkin’s lymphoma (formerly referred to as Hodgkin’s disease) by examining the white blood cells affected by the disease.
