        TERMINOLOGY

        • Abbreviations

          • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL)
        • Definitions

          • NHL includes any of various lymphomas, characterized by absence of Reed-Steinberg cells
            • Can be categorized into aggressive/high-grade or indolent/low-grade types
            • Formed by either B cells or T cells
          • Different forms of parotid involvement with NHL
            • Nodal NHL
              • Primary nodal NHL
              • Systemic NHL involving parotid nodes
            • Primary parenchymal lymphoma
              • Most often mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT)-type NHL (MALToma), often associated with Sjögren syndrome (SS) or benign lymphoepithelial lesion (BLEL)
