Abstract

Peripheral T-cells lymphomas (PTCLs) in children are usually good prognosis Ki1+ ALCL; other PTCLs have the same poor prognosis as in adults. We report the cases of two children with PTCL, whose disease had an aggressive clinical course. There are only scanty reports dealing with optimal therapy for this rare disease. Considering the bad prognosis shared by adults and children, a common study is recommended.
