Lymphoproliferative Diseases

  • Thomas V. Colby


Lymphoreticular diseases affecting the lung include primary and secondary lymphomas and related disorders, leukemias, and a number of lesions that are generally considered benign and hyperplastic processes. Pseudolymphoma, lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia, small (well-differentiated) lymphocytic lymphomas, and lymphomatoid granulomatosis have long been difficult lesions for pathologists.1–5 Lymphomatoid granulomatosis, with its synonyms,6–8 has been considered by some to be a peculiar vasculitis and by others a lymphoproliferative disorder, with the latter being the prevailing view.8
