The time period "lymphoma" used to be initially utilized by Billroth in 1871 [55], and by way of Virehow [763] a few years prior to that, for the designation of swelling of lymph nodes that was once now not as a result of "eareinoma, sareoma, ehondroma, myxoma, ete. " In his paper, Billroth reeounted sueeessful therapy with arsenie (" Fowler's solution") of a number of "lymphomas" that had built in a 40-year-old girl in the course of a 10-month interval. From this file it's not solely transparent if the a number of" lymphomas" deseribed have been infeetious or in the event that they have been eonsis­ te nt with what we now suggest by means of "malignant lymphoma. " at the present time, the time period "malignant lymphoma" is mostly used eolleetively for malignant lymphoproliferative neoplasms that have a tendency to come up in lymph nodes and in addition eneompasses Hodgkin's affliction and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. The adjeetive "malignant" turns out slightly superfluous sinee, as well as invoice­ roth's unique eonnotation, the feel of malignaney is these days learn into the note "lymphoma. " to ensure, precise, i. e. , malignant, lymphomas must be differentiated from "pseudolymphomas," or to place it extra exaetly, "pseudomalignant lymphomas. " during this ebook, "lymphoma" and "malignant lymphoma" are used interehan­ geably for malignant neoplastie lymphoproliferative problems, and "pseudo­ lymphoma" is used for benign lymphomatous proeesses. Our editorial eonsultant, Dr. M. Leider, disagrees with all of this. In his Dictionary of Dermatological phrases, phrases, and words [421] and different works, he continues that there's no etymologieal foundation for phrases bearing the eontrived suffix" -oma" or the real Greek suffix" -ma" to indicate malignaney.
