Primary small noncleaved cell lymphoma of the liver. Report of an adult case in complete remission after treatment with combination chemotherapy. Academic Article uri icon


  • Open liver biopsy in a 34-year-old woman with hepatosplenomegaly showed small noncleaved cell lymphoma. Except for an enlarged spleen, there was no evidence of other sites of involvement. She was treated with combination chemotherapy and is alive and free of disease > 5 years after diagnosis. We believe this to be the first reported case in an adult of primary hepatic or hepatosplenic lymphoma of the small cleaved cell type with long-term disease-free survival.
