Purpose: It is well known that an association exists between the pathogenesis of lymphomas and autoimmune diseases. Autoantibodies are detected at higher frequency in lymphoproliferative diseases, but neither the precise role of the immune system nor the cause of this is comprehensively understood. In this study we evaluated the presence and significance of some autoantibodies for patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL).
