Abstract

T and NK-cell lymphomas are aggressive neoplasms with a unique epidemiological distribution, demonstrating higher prevalence in Asian countries compared to the West. Through the efforts of international collaboration, significant progress has been made especially on the biological understanding and clinical management of rare lymphoma subtypes including NK/T-cell lymphomas and monomorphic epitheliotropic intestinal T-cell lymphoma. In this review, we summarize the current status of lymphoma research conducted by the Asian Lymphoma Study Group and highlight key updates on the advancement of T and NK-cell lymphoma research.
