Objectives

Upon completion of this course, students will:

  1. understand the characteristics of primary bone lymphoma
  2. be familiar with the alternate names for PBL.
  3. know the frequency of occurrence of PBL
  4. understand what age groups most patients diagnosed with PBL are in
  5. be familiar with the most common affected site for PBL
  6. understand those areas NOT commonly affected by PBL
  7. know what radicular symptoms indicate regarding PBL
  8. understand the signs of PBL
  9. know what bone involvement of disseminated malignant lymphoma means
  10. understand how nodal disease is involved in the diagnosis of PBL.
  11. understand how disseminated disease is involved in the diagnosis of PBL.
  12. know the lineage of cells that PBL is made up of
  13. be familiar with the types of cells PBL could be made up of
  14. know during which decade the criteria for diagnosis PBL were initially suggested
  15. understand what period of time lymphoma in a bony site with no evidence of disease elsewhere suggests
