Clinical Classification

Clinical Information

  • Hodgkin Disease

    a malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and general lymphoid tissue. in the classical variant, giant usually multinucleate hodgkin's and reed-sternberg cells are present; in the nodular lymphocyte predominant variant, lymphocytic and histiocytic cells are seen.
  • Lymphocyte Depletion

    immunosuppression by reduction of circulating lymphocytes or by t-cell depletion of bone marrow. the former may be accomplished in vivo by thoracic duct drainage or administration of antilymphocyte serum. the latter is performed ex vivo on bone marrow before its transplantation.
  • Reed-Sternberg Cells

    large cells, usually multinucleate, whose presence is a common histologic characteristic of classical hodgkin disease.

Patient Education

Blood Disorders

Your blood is living tissue made up of liquid and solids. The liquid part, called plasma, is made of water, salts and protein. Over half of your blood is plasma. The solid part of your blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Blood disorders affect one or more parts of the blood and prevent your blood from doing its job. They can be acute or chronic. Many blood disorders are inherited. Other causes include other diseases, side effects of medicines, and a lack of certain nutrients in your diet.

Types of blood disorders include:

  • Platelet disorders, excessive clotting, and bleeding problems, which affect how your blood clots
  • Anemia, which happens when your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body
  • Cancers of the blood, such as leukemia and myeloma
  • Eosinophilic disorders, which are problems with one type of white blood cell.
