Abstract

Hepatosplenic gamma-delta (γδ) T-cell lymphoma is a rare but increasingly recognized lymphoid malignancy predominantly affecting young adult males. It is not well appreciated in the pediatric population. We report the third case of this aggressive lymphoma in a child as well as additional support for the consistency of the recently discovered cytogenetic abnormalities, isochromosome 7q and trisomy 8, which in this case were documented using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) of a touch- preparation of the spleen.
