PURPOSE: Extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (ENKTL), nasal-type, is a distinct subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. ENKTL is sensitive to radiotherapy, but the prognosis is poorer than those of other types of early stage lymphoma. To date, optimal treatment strategies for patients with early stage ENKTL have not been fully defined. METHODS: We retrospectively investigated the efficacy and safety of pegaspargase, gemcitabine, and oxaliplatin (P-GEMOX) combined with different dose radiotherapy (RT) in the treatment of 35 newly diagnosed, stage IE to IIE ENKTL patients at our institution from October 2011 to September 2015...
