Types of Hodgkins Lymphoma

Hodgkins Lymphoma is divided into Classical Hodgkins disease and nodular predominant Hodgkins disease.

The two main types of Hodgkins lymphoma are:

I. Classical Hodgkins lymphoma.

Classical Hodgkin lymphoma is divided into four subtypes, based on how the cancer cells look under a microscope:

  • Lymphocyte-rich - Classical Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Lymphocyte-depleted Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Nodular sclerosis Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Mixed cellularity Hodgkin lymphoma.

II. Nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkins lymphoma.

In the Nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkins disease, the malignant Reed-Sternberg cells express B cell markers, such as CD20. This type may eventually progress to develop diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
