Answer

Immunodeficiency states that seem to predispose to NHL include congenital immunodeficiency states (eg, ataxia telangiectasia, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, common variable hypogammaglobulinemia, and severe combined immunodeficiency), as well as acquired immunodeficiency states (eg, HIV infection and iatrogenic immunosuppression for solid organ or bone marrow transplant recipients).
