Hepatosplenic γ-δ T-cell lymphoma, an exceptionally uncommon subtype of peripheral T-cell lymphomas, commonly presents with advanced-stage disease manifesting with hepatosplenomegaly, cytopenias, and constitutional symptoms. Management of this subset is challenging as a result of the unique presentation and refractory nature to conventional treatment approaches. There is a lack of consensus guidelines for up-front induction strategies, and the role of consolidative autologous or allogeneic stem-cell transplantation is controversial. Prospective studies are lacking, and treatment is often guided by literature on the basis of case series or single-institution studies, lending to expert opinions influencing treatment paradigms.
