Intermediate- and high-grade lymphomas have a more varied clinical presentation, including the following:

  • Adenopathy: Most patients

  • Extranodal involvement: More than one third of patients; most common sites are GI/GU tracts (including Waldeyer ring), skin, bone marrow, sinuses, thyroid, CNS

  • B symptoms: Temperature >38°C, night sweats, weight loss >10% from baseline within 6 months; in approximately 30-40% of patients
