Diagnosis and Management of Mature B-Cell Lymphomas in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults
Mature B-cell lymphoma in children, adolescents and young adults comprises three major histological subtypes including in order of frequency Burkitt, germinal center diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma. The cure rate of the first two with aggressive short chemotherapy based on clinical grouping is ∼90% in resource rich countries. Recent data has shown that incorporation of immune therapy has enhanced event free survival in advanced patients. Future studies will address the possibility of reducing the burden of chemotherapy by substitution of immune based therapies.
