Alternate Names: NHL
Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) are tumors of the peripheral lymph nodes, thymus or abdominal organs, such as the bowel, but can appear in other sites. These tumors differ substantially from lymphomas seen in adults. In children, NHL may behave similarly to acute leukemia in that both cancers can involve bone marrow, blood, skin and the central nervous system.
Children with immunodeficiencies have a greatly increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Therapy varies depending on subtypes and stages of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Chemotherapy, using a combination of drugs, has proven effective. Because of the effectiveness of chemotherapy, there is little role for radiation treatment.
