INTRODUCTION AND CLASSIFICATION
Disagreement and controversy regarding the etiology, classification and diagnosis of malignant tumors of the lymph nodes make their study a subject of interest and importance. My aim in this paper is to present clinical data and basic facts gained from a study of forty-one patients personally observed at the Steiner Clinic from 1924 to 1928, inclusive. Only those cases in which the diagnosis was proved by biopsy or necropsy have been considered, although twenty others in which a probable diagnosis of malignant lymphoma was made were observed during the same period.Numerous classifications have added to the complexities of the subject and to the difficulties of the clinician
