T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the lung

Intern Med. 1993 May;32(5):403-7. doi: 10.2169/internalmedicine.32.403.


We report a case of primary T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the lung. A definite diagnosis was made histologically at open lung biopsy. Atypical cells in the biopsy specimen reacted with monoclonal T-cell markers. Transbronchial lung biopsy and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid were useful in the diagnosis. Primary T-cell lymphoma of the lung is rare and is reviewed in this report.
