The medical records of all patients with diffuse histiocytic lymphoma (DHL) presenting for treatment at the Stanford University Medical Center between 1970-1978 were reviewed.

Following treatment, 83% of Stage IE patients, 43% of Stage IIE patients, and 27% of patients with Stage III and IV DHL achieved durable complete remissions. Considering all stages, a 54% complete remission rate was observed. Of the 26 patients achieving a complete remission, seven have relapsed and the remaining continue free of disease from 6+ to 82+ months. The median survival for patients obtaining a CR was greater than 36 months. Gastrointestinal bleeding or perforation probably as a consequence of therapy was noted 25% of patients. The implications of these findings for improved therapeutic programs ...Continue Reading
