60 years. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma represents more than 60% of all lymphomas seen in older patients. In
a group of the elderly patients more often then in the younger ones an untolerability of chemotherapy may
appear, mainly associated with concomitant diseases or/and myelotoxic effect of lymphoma therapy.
