The “Gray-Zone Lymphomas” represent histological entities that are interposed between Hodgkin’s lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. We report the case of a man diagnosed with a Lymphoma B unclassifiable with intermediate characteristics between Hodgkin’s lymphoma and a large cell lymphoma B, with a rare spinal localization. We decided to treat him with Adriamycin, Bleomycin, Vinblastine, Dacarbazine and anti-CD20 antibody, achieving a complete response. We here discuss histopathologic patterns, and work-up of this pathological entity, and we demonstrated that more intensive therapy do not always correlate with better therapeutic goals, inviting to analyze each case.


KEY WORDS: Hodgkin Disease - Lymphoma, Non-Hodgkin - Drug therapy - Spine
