It is best to read this information with our general information about non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). If you have any more questions, you can ask your doctor or nurse at the hospital where you are having treatment.
Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a rare type of fast-growing NHL. It develops when T-cells (also called T-lymphocytes) become abnormal. T-cells are white blood cells that fight infection.
The abnormal T-cells (lymphoma cells) usually build up in lymph nodes, but it can affect other parts of the body.
