Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The pathological and clinical features of two patients who presented with a lymphoma of the lymphoblastic type primary in the breast are reported. Only six possible similar cases were found in the literature. The need for the morphologic recognition of this particular type of lymphoma, regardless of the site of presentation, is discussed. Immediately after biopsy of the breast mass, aggressive treatment with systemic therapy is recommended because of the high propensity of lymphoblastic lymphoma to disseminate and to progress to acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
