NCCN Guidelines® Insights - T-Cell Lymphomas, Version 2.2018
Natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphomas are a rare and distinct subtype of non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas. NK/T-cell lymphomas are predominantly extranodal and most of these are nasal type, often localized to the upper aerodigestive tract. Because extranodal NK/T-cell lymphomas (ENKL) are rare malignancies, randomized trials comparing different regimens have not been conducted to date and standard therapy has not yet been established for these patients. These NCCN Guidelines Insights discuss the recommendations for the diagnosis and management of patients with ENKL as outlined in the NCCN Guidelines for T-Cell Lymphomas.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurses, and pharmacists involved in the management of patients with cancer.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Integrate into professional practice the updates to the NCCN Guidelines for T-Cell Lymphomas
- Describe the rationale behind the decision-making process for developing the NCCN Guidelines for T-Cell Lymphomas

The ACCME/ANCC/ACPE defines “conflict of interest” as when an individual has an opportunity to affect CE content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.
ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CE activity. ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC have not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC defines “’relevant’ financial relationships” as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest.
