Management perspective for mantle cell lymphoma


Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is genetically characterized by the t(11;14) (q13;q32) translocation resulting in the overexpression of cyclin D1. It generally has an aggressive clinical course with a poor prognosis. However, there is now a recognized subgroup with clinically indolent MCL. Management of MCL can be challenging. Early recognition of young and fit patients for potential intensive therapy and autologous stem cell transplant is important.
