Abstract

We describe a patient with unusually indolent hepatosplenic gammadelta T cell lymphoma characterised by severe lassitude and high fever. No significant responses were obtained to a range of chemotherapeutic and biological agents. 2'-deoxycoformycin (dCF), however, produced a dramatic and sustained clinical and histological response. This is the second recent report of gammadelta T cell lymphoma responding to dCF, suggesting this agent may have a specific role in this condition.
