HHV8 and EBV negative primary effusion-based lymphoma: a case report of
a new provisional entity and review of literature.
Primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) is a rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma confined
exclusively to body cavities without detectable tumor masses. The term
PEL-like is an entity similar to PEL in clinical presentation but
without relation to human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8). We report a case of
HHV8- and EBV-negative primary effusion-based lymphoma.
