Abstract

Micro-Abstract Primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) is a rare form of lymphoma, primarily seen in individuals who are immunosuppressed. We studied all cases of PEL seen at our institution over a 15-year period and observed that if affected mostly male patients with HIV who were not taking the antiretroviral medication. Newer chemotherapy regimens including the drug bortezomib may be more effective in treating PEL.
