PURPOSE: This research study is collecting and storing tissue samples from patients with rare or cutaneous non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
- To determine the clinical features, treatment, and outcome of patients with rare or cutaneous pediatric non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL).
- To determine the pathologic and biologic features of these diseases, including molecular diagnostics and flow cytometry.
- To establish a bank of these pathologically reviewed diseases and make specimens of blood and tissue available to qualified researchers.
- To determine sub-groups of these diseases that could be targeted for future biologic, pathologic, or therapeutic studies.
OUTLINE: On study data will include presenting symptoms and signs, physical description of the tumor if it is on the skin, results of metastatic evaluation, stage (if available), blood count, markers, and the results of viral serologies. Any existing underlying conditions that could predispose to lymphoma will also be noted.
Demographic and outcomes data will be stored and maintained by the COG Research Data Center. Demographic data will be linked to the specimen data in the BPC database.
The approach of this study is prospective data collection, including central pathologic review, relevant biologic studies, submission of material to the Biopathology Center (BPC) and collection of diagnostic and outcome data. Participants will be registered with a standard COG registration form for documentation of age, gender, race, date of diagnosis, initial presentation, initial work-up, and stage according to the standard staging for the specific disease, initial diagnostic procedure, and institutional diagnosis. Tissue will be sent according to guidelines in Section 4.0. Follow-up data, including relapse or progression and vital status will be reported annually for 5 years.
Patients will be followed annually for 5 years and data will be collected including vital status, evidence/absence of disease, type of treatment received, progression/relapse and whether the patient continues on study.

A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.
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.
The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.
A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.
A study in which observations are made before and after an intervention, both in a group that receives the intervention and in a control group that does not.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
