MCL survival from SCT is 6 years this month

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is an aggressive variety of lymphoma which is typically found in the lymph nodes, spleen, marrow and blood.  It is unique in that it is classified as an aggressive variety of lymphoma and yet it sometimes behaves as an indolent lymphoma. Most typically it behaves aggressively and is more difficult to treat than other indolent lymphomas.

Mantle cell lymphoma is called that because it usually infiltrates the Mantle Zone of the lymph nodes. That is the area surrounding the lymphoid follicles. When it remains in the mantle zone it generally follows a more indolent course. When it spreads outside this area, in a more diffuse growth pattern, its behavior becomes less indolent and more aggressive.

It was this aggressive form of MCL that I contracted in March 2006 and for which I ultimately received an allogeneic stem cell transplant in August 2007 at City of Hope, Duarte, CA.
