Other iatrogenic immunodeficiency-associated lymphoproliferative disorders
Tumours of haematopoietic and lymphoid tissues


The other iatrogenic lymphoproliferative disorders (LPD) are lymphoid proliferations or lymphomas that arise in patients treated with immunosuppressive drugs for autoimmune diseases or conditions other than in the allograft/autograft transplant setting. They comprise a spectrum ranging from polymorphic proliferations resembling polymorphic post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders (PTLD) to cases that fulfill the criteria for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) or other B-cell lymphomas, peripheral T/NK-cell lymphoma, or classical Hodgkin lymphoma (CHL). Iatrogenically-related lymphomas supervening on haematological malignancies are not covered here
