Case Report

Use of PEG-asparaginase in a case of Hepatosplenic γδ T-cell lymphoma with long-term remission after stem cell transplantation

Hepatosplenic γδ T-cell lymphoma (HSTCL) is a rare aggressive peripheral T-cell lymphoma. Prognosis is usually poor with a median survival between 8 and 16 months after traditional chemotherapy. Stem cell transplantation (SCT) is promising and with a more intense induction regimen, has yielded positive results. We report the use of pegylated-asparaginase (PEG-asparaginase) along with a conventional anthracycline-containing regimen in a 51-year-old male who was diagnosed with HSTCL, achieved a complete remission, and subsequently underwent peripheral blood SCT and remained in remission at the time of this case report.

Keywords: : Hepatosplenic γδ T-cell lymphoma, pegylated-asparaginase, stem cell transplant
