Abstract

BACKGROUND Although patients with Klinefelter syndrome have elevated risk and incidence rates for several solid cancers, reports on the incidence of hematological malignancies have been equivocal. CASE REPORT We report a patient diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma in whom Klinefelter syndrome was newly detected. Moreover, we discuss the development of a variety of lymphomas in patients with Klinefelter syndrome. CONCLUSIONS This is the first case describing angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma in a patient with Klinefelter syndrome who was treated with chemotherapy.
