Adult T‐cell leukaemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is a mature T‐cell neoplasm of post‐thymic lymphocytes aetiologically linked to the human T‐cell lymphotropic virus, HTLV‐I, and with a distinct geographical distribution. The disease manifests with leukaemia in greater than two thirds of patients Cited by: 214. Adult T-Cell Leukemia/Lymphoma.

Lymph nodes were examined from four patients with incipient adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATLL) who had mild lymphadenopathy, fatigue, no or a few atypical lymphocytes in their peripheral blood, and integrated proviral human T-cell lymphotrophic virus type I (HTLV-I) DNA in the nodes. Adult T cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATL) is a peripheral T cell neoplasm associated with infection by the human T-lymphotropic virus, type I (HTLV-1). Although it is considered one of the highly aggressive T cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma variants, the disease course is variable and sometimes quite indolent.

Adult T-cell leukaemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is a potentially aggressive type of mature T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It is linked to the viral infection, HTLV-1 (human T-cell lymphotropic virus 1). ATLL cancerous T-cells are found in the peripheral circulating blo. . Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL or ATLL) is a rare cancer of the immune system's T-cells caused by human T cell leukemia/lymphotropic virus type 1 ().Specialty: Oncology, Hematology.
