The topic of lymphoma occupied less than four pages of the 1922 edition of Osler's Principles and Practice of Medicine. All but one paragraph concerned Hodgkin disease. In his 1948 classic,Pathology of Tumors, Willis lamented, "Nowhere in pathology has a chaos of names so clouded clear concepts as in the subject of lymphoid tumors." Willis notwithstanding, as recently as 1968 the 17th edition of the Osler textbook identified only the categories of follicular lymphoma, lymphosarcoma, Hodgkin disease, and reticulum cell sarcoma.
