Answer

Classification

Over the years, different systems have been used to classify lymphomas, including the Rappaport Classification (used until the 1970s), the Working Formulation, the National Cancer Institute Working Formulation, and the Revised European-American Lymphoma Classification (REAL). In 2001, a modern comprehensive classification system was published under the auspices of the World Health Organization (WHO); this represents the first worldwide consensus document on the classification of lymphoma.
