Answer

During a period of neutropenia, advise patients with lymphoblastic lymphoma of the following:

  • Contact a physician if fever, bleeding, or infection occurs.

  • Avoid raw fruits or vegetables.

  • Avoid crowds of people.

  • Avoid contact with people who are ill.

  • Always protect the site of an indwelling catheter from contamination.

For patient education information, see eMedicineHealth's Cancer Center, as well as Lymphoma.
