  • Lymphoma, Hodgkin, classic (CHL) [MIM:236000]: A malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen and general lymphoid tissue, and the presence of large, usually multinucleate, cells (Reed-Sternberg cells). Reed-Sternberg cells compose only 1-2% of the total tumor cell mass. The remainder is composed of a variety of reactive, mixed inflammatory cells consisting of lymphocytes, plasma cells, neutrophils, eosinophils and histiocytes. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19706467}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry. A variant in the 5-UTR of KLHDC8B, responsible for decreasing its expression, is associated with classic Hodgkin lymphoma and segregates with the disease in some families (PubMed:19706467). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19706467}.
  • Note=A chromosomal aberration disrupting KLHDC8B has been found in a family with the nodular sclerosis type of Hodgkin lymphoma. Translocation t(2,3)(q11.2;p21.31).
