Blood 2022 May 11. Epub 2022 May 11.

University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands.

Patients <65 years with peripheral T-cell lymphoma are treated with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone (CHOP). While the addition of etoposide and consolidation with autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) are preferred in some countries, randomized trials are lacking. This nationwide population-based study assessed the impact of etoposide and ASCT on overall survival (OS) among patients aged 18-64 years with stage II-IV anaplastic large T-cell lymphoma (ALCL), angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) and peripheral T-cell lymphoma not otherwise specified (PTCL-NOS), diagnosed between 1989-2018, utilizing the Netherlands Cancer Registry.

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Saint Louis University, St. Louis, MO 63104, USA.

Peripheral T-Cell lymphoma (PTCL) comprises a heterogenous group of uncommon lymphomas derived from mature, post-thymic or "peripheral" T- and natural killer cells. The World Health Organization (WHO) emphasizes a multiparameter approach in the diagnosis and subclassification of these neoplasms, integrating clinical, morphologic, immunophenotypic, and genetic features into the final diagnosis. Clinical presentation is particularly important due to histologic, immunophenotypic and genetic variations within established subtypes, and no convenient immunophenotypic marker of monoclonality exists.
