Radiation therapy remains an important component of lymphoma treatment. It has evolved with improvements in technology and a better understanding of how to successfully integrate it into lymphoma treatment. There are specific clinical presentations where omission of radiation therapy could adversely affect patient outcome and should not be overlooked. Radiation therapy may serve an important role as primary treatment, as a component of combined modality therapy, as adjuvant therapy to maximize local control, and as an important component of salvage therapy for relapsed or primary refractory lymphoma and in the successful palliation of lymphoma. This review identifies those clinical presentations where the use of radiation therapy should not be overlooked or should at least be considered.

The standard treatment of waldeyer's ring DLBCL remains controversial. This retrospective study was designed to evaluate the role of consolidation radiotherapy (RT) in patients with stage I/II diffuse...
A prospective, multicentre study of involved-field radiotherapy with autologous stem cell transplantation for patients with Hodgkin lymphoma and aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (ALLG HDNHL04/TROG 03.03).
The role of involved-field radiotherapy (IFRT) with autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) for lymphomas remains uncertain.
To determine the efficacy and toxicity of chemoimmunotherapy followed by either whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT) or intensive chemotherapy and autologous stem-cell transplantation (ASCT) as a first-lin...

B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
Mistakes committed in the preparations for radiotherapy, including errors in positioning of patients, alignment radiation beams, or calculation of radiation doses.
Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1 isolated from mature T4 cells in patients with T-lymphoproliferation malignancies. It causes adult T-cell leukemia (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), T-cell lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL), and is involved in mycosis fungoides, SEZARY SYNDROME and tropical spastic paraparesis (PARAPARESIS, TROPICAL SPASTIC).
The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.
