Three cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the mandible treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy



Three cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the mandible treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy



Radiation Medicine 23(4): 296-302



We report three cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the mandible and a review of the literature. All 3 of our patients had stage I AE disease and had complete remission for more than 2 years after 42-46 Gy of irradiation to the primary tumor with regional lymph nodes and 3 courses of chemotherapy consisting of cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, and predonisolone (CHOP). Literature analysis, although biased toward published data, indicated that the 3-year disease-specific survival rates for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) of the mandible were 90.5% and 47.6% for stages I and II, respectively. The treatment results for NHL of the mandible may be similar to general primary bone NHL and to other extranodal NHL's. Radiotherapy alone is not sufficient for tumor control for stage I+II, disease, and combination chemotherapy may be needed.
