Abstract: Malignant lymphomas is a generic term given to the tumours of lymphoreticular system that includes lymphocytes of T, B and Null type, histiocytes- monocytes and Reticular cells. This term is reserved for those neoplastic processes that initially present as localized lesions and are characterized by formation of gross tumour nodules. Neoplastic lesions that are systemic and diffuse from their inception are called Leukaemias or Malignant histocytosis, depending upon their presumed cell of origin: Malignant lymphomas have also been defined as tumours of the Immune System.
