A review of new or emerging ideas concerning diffuse large B-cell lymphomas is presented, with particular emphasis on histologic classification, genetic prognostic factors, first-line and salvage treatments, and specific locations such as neurologic, cutaneous, or gastrointestinal sites. This lymphoma remains the most heterogeneous of all lymphomas for its clinical characteristics and outcome. This heterogeneity is probably secondary to the fact that a large proportion of lymphomas seems to occur from a transformation of an unknown indolent lymphoma.
