Richter transformation

Richter's syndrome RS is most commonly used as well. I chose Richter transformation instead of RS (plainly) because the word 'richerisation carries the idea of an evolution, a transformation towards the RS.

«Richter’s syndrome, or a Richter transformation, occurs when CLL develops into an aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma, usually a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Richter’s syndrome is a less favourable prognostic factor.»

Example sentence(s):
  • «The term Richter syndrome (RS) indicates the transformation of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) into an aggressive lymphoma»
