Abstract/Summary The non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (NHL) encompass a broad range of lymphoid malignancies that vary considerably in their underlying biology, natural history, and response to therapy. Classification schemas for NHL have evolved with the current World Health Organization (WHO) system attempting to identify biologically distinctive diseases that are usually associated with unique clinical presentation, natural history, and outcome. Conventional myeloablative allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT) has long been studied in the treatment of acute leukemias and chronic myeloid leukemia. More recently allo-SCT has been increasingly applied to the management of NHL although the precise indications of allo-SCT in these disorders are not well defined.
