Answer

The NCCN recommends both the GELF criteria and the 2004 Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (FLIPI) for risk stratification. The FLIPI includes the following risk factors [10] :

  • Age >60 y

  • Ann Arbor Stage III-IV

  • Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level above the upper limit of normal

  • Hemoglobin level < 12 g/dL

  • Four or more nodal sites of disease
