Abstract

The non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) occurring in children are described on the basis of the Kiel classification. As a rule, the NHL in children are of high-grade malignancy. The morphologic and immunologic features of all types of high-grade malignant B-cell lymphoma are described. The most frequent type of B-NHL in children is B-lymphoblastic lymphoma, including Burkitt and non-Burkitt types. Centroblastic lymphoma, immunoblastic lymphoma and unclassifield high-grade malignant NHL are less common in children. The difference between the morphologic term 'unclassified' and the immunologic definition 'non-B/non-T' or 'null' (or 'unclassified') is explained. The equivalents of the various lymphoma types in the Lukes-Collins and Rappaport classifications are given.
