Adult T-Cell Leukemia/Lymphoma
Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATLL) is a peripheral T-cell neoplasm most often composed of highly pleomorphic lymphoid cells. The disease is usually widely disseminated and is caused by the human retrovirus known as human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1)(Ohshima et al. 2017).
