In order to complement the already available European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Clinical Practice Guidelines for the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients with malignant lymphomas, ESMO organised a consensus conference on mature B-cell lymphomas and chronic lymphocytic leukaemia to develop recommendations on critical subjects difficult to consider in detail in the ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines. The following areas were identified: (i) the elderly patient, (ii) prognostic factors suitable for clinical use and (iii) the 'ultra-high-risk' group.

This manuscript presents recommendations on the clinical management of elderly patients with malignant lymphoma. It provides guidance on defining patient fitness and assessing quality of life, as well as diagnostic work-up and treatment recommendations in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, follicular lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma, peripheral T-cell lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
