Answer

Patients who present with aggressive forms of NHL, or whose disease converts to an aggressive form, may achieve complete remission with combination chemotherapy regimens, with or without aggressive high-dose consolidation therapy with marrow or stem cell support. Aggressive lymphomas are increasingly observed in patients who are HIV positive, and treatment of these patients requires special consideration.
