Stem Cell transplantation is in the infant stages for this disease; however it is promising. Reports on allo-SCT in T-cell lymphoma have been encouraging. The largest series by Corradini et al. reported on 17 patients with a median age of 14 years, of whom 8 patients had failed an autograft. The estimated 3-year OS and PFS rates were 81% and 64%, respectively. TRM at 2 years was 6% and DLI induced a response in 2 patients progressing after allografting.
