Hematological malignancies can be divided into leukemias, lymphomas, and multiple myeloma.

Lymphomas can be divided into Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma can be subdivided into aggressive lymphoma and indolent lymphoma.

Aggressive non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma includes:
*Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma​ (DLBCL)
*Burkitt’s lymphoma.
*Mantle cell lymphoma.
*Precursor T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma.
*B-lymphoblastic lymphoma.

Indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas include:
*Follicular lymphoma
*Marginal zone B-cell lymphoma (MALToma)
*Hairy cell leukemia/ lymphoma.
*Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia.
*Mycosis fungoides/ Sezary syndrome.

Marginal Zone B-cell lymphoma is an indolent (low grade) Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma…It can be nodal, extranodal, or splenic. The extranodal is also known as Mucosa-associated lymphatic tissue lymphoma (MALToma). It can have B (constitutional) symptoms such as unintentional weight loss, night sweats, and fever.
Marginal zone B-cell lymphoma can transform into diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (aggressive NHL).

MALT lymphoma can have (11;18) translocation

For diagnosis, you need a core needle biopsy or an excisional biopsy of the lymph node, stomach, salivary gland, ….etc.

Treat with the “watch and wait” approach, radiation or chemotherapy depending on the stage.
