    Abstract

    Pediatric-type follicular lymphoma and pediatric nodal marginal zone lymphoma are 2 of the rarest B-cell lymphomas. Although they are both predominantly seen in children, they can manifest in the adult population as well. Our understanding of these lymphomas has advanced rapidly in recent years such that we not only have a firm grasp of the morphologic and immunophenotypic findings, but also have a deeper insight into critical genetic and molecular pathways of these diseases. This review will cover the clinical and pathologic characteristics, treatment, prognosis, and important differential diagnoses of these entities.
