|Abstract:||72歳女,手術により左側腫瘍を摘出し,病理診断にて非ホジキンリンパ腫(diffuse large B-cell lymphoma)をえたため,術後vincristine, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicinを用い,化学療法を行い,2クール終了時にて完全寛解をみた.CRは6ヵ月持続したが,肝および全身に再発し,約1年にて死亡した|
A 72-year-old woman with bilateral non-Hodgkin's lymphoma of the adrenal glands causing adrenal insufficiency is reported. The left-side lymphoma (diffuse large B-cell lymphoma) was removed surgically but the right-side lymphoma could not be removed. Complete response was obtained with subsequent combined chemotherapy and was maintained for 6 months with repeated chemotherapies. However, the patient died of liver recurrence 1 year after admission. In cases of malignant lymphoma forming a bulky mass, surgery with subsequent chemotherapy appears to reduce the cancer volume and improve the therapeutic outcome.
