Mantle cell lymphoma: a non-Hodgkin's lymphoma

submitted by: mdanderson

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare form of blood cancer belonging to the disease group classified as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Only 3-6% of all non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases in the United States are MCL. Michael Wang, M.D., associate professor, and Jorge Romaguera, M.D., professor, both in Lymphoma/Myeloma at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discuss this disease that forms in the lymph node region known as the mantle zone.
