Medical Definition of Malignant lymphoma

1. A general term for ordinarily malignant neoplasms of lymphoid and reticuloendothelial tissues which present as apparently circumscribed solid tumours composed of cells that appear primitive or resemble lymphocytes, plasma cells, or histiocytes. Lymphomas appear most frequently in lymph nodes, spleen, or other normal sites of lymphoreticular cells; when disseminated, Lymphoma's, especially of the lymphocytic type, may invade the peripheral blood and manifest as leukaemia. Lymphomas are classified by cell type, degrees of differentiation, and nodular or diffuse pattern; Hodgkin's disease and Burkitt's lymphoma are special forms. (05 Mar 2000)
