In this retrospective study we evaluated the prognostic impact of peripheral blood monocytosis in patients with T-cell non Hodgkin lymphomas with “aggressive-typically nodal presentation”. In this dataset monocytes >0.8 × 109/L had a strong and statistically significant negative impact on overall survival (OS). In univariate analysis several parameters, including age >60 years, advanced stage, bone marrow involvement, ECOG PS >1, high LDH level,monocytes >0.8 × 109/L, hemoglobin < 120 g/L, albumin < 35 g/L) had a negative influence on outcome, but in multivariate analysis, monocytosis alone had a stronger association with poor OS.
