Background and purpose

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder, with frequent relapses and a poor prognosis. This study analyzes response to treatment and prognosis in a series of MCL patients.

Patients and method

Retrospective study of MCL patients diagnosed in a single institution between 1996 and 2013. The cohort was divided according to the treatment received.


Forty-five patients were included (32 male) with a median age of 66 years old. Twenty-one received intensive chemotherapy or chemoimmunotherapy (based on high-dose cytarabine), 13 semi-intensive (without high-dose cytarabine), 8 not intensive and 3 did not require treatment. Overall response rate was 85% in the intensive and 77% in the semi-intensive treatment groups. In multivariate analysis, intensive treatment was correlated with a longer progression-free survival (hazard ratio 9.8 [95% CI 2.7–35.5], p=.001) and overall survival (4.5 [1.2–17.8], p=.03).


In this retrospective series of MCL patients, intensive treatment was correlated with better outcomes than the other treatment modalities.

Fundamento y objetivo

El linfoma de células del manto (LCM) es un linfoma poco frecuente, con recaídas habituales y mal pronóstico. Este estudio analiza la respuesta al tratamiento y el pronóstico en una serie de pacientes con LCM.

Pacientes y método

Estudio retrospectivo de los pacientes con LCM diagnosticados en un centro entre 1996 y 2013. Se dividió la cohorte en función del tratamiento recibido.


Se incluyeron 45 pacientes (32 varones) con una edad mediana de 66 años. Veintiún pacientes recibieron quimioterapia o quimioinmunoterapia intensiva (pautas con citarabina a dosis altas), 13 semiintensiva (sin citarabina a dosis altas), 8 no intensiva y 3 no precisaron tratamiento. La respuesta global fue del 85% con tratamiento intensivo y del 77% con semiintensivo. En el análisis multivariable el tratamiento intensivo se asoció a una mayor probabilidad de supervivencia libre de progresión (SLP) y supervivencia global (SG) (hazard ratio de 9,8 [IC 95% 2,7-35,5], p=0,001 para la SLP y 4,5 [1,2-17,8], p=0,03 para la SG).


En esta serie retrospectiva de pacientes con LCM el tratamiento intensivo se asoció a mejores resultados respecto al resto de las modalidades de tratamiento.
