Abstract

A man with long-standing common variable hypogammaglobulinemia was treated with chemotherapy and local radiation for diffuse mixed lymphoma. He continues in complete remission 42 months after the completion of therapy. Vigorous therapy for lymphoma can be used in the face of preexistent immunodeficiency. Complete staging and appropriate combination chemotherapy or radiation therapy should be carried out for lymphomas that occur in certain immunodeficient patients.
