Abstract

The generic term aggressive B-cell lymphoma includes a variety of entities, each with particular diagnostic and therapeutic issues. To define these entities better and to help confront such issues, a workshop was organized by the European Association of Haematopathology (EAHP) and the Society of Haematology during the XI Meeting of the EAHP, held in Italy in May 2002. Participants were asked to submit cases under various categories and all cases submitted were examined and reviewed by the panel members. The panel's diagnoses formed the basis for discussion at the workshop and a limited number of cases were selected to be presented in more detail and discussed during the workshop. After the workshop the panel met again to discuss the outcome, summarized in this report, which describes the panel's proposals regarding diagnostic criteria, terminology, the definition of new entities and evaluation of biological differential and new prognostic parameters.
