How are the AIDS-related lymphomas grouped for treatment?

Lymphomas are categorized in different ways, but the main way AIDS-related lymphomas are grouped is based on where they started in the body. Peripheral/systemic lymphomas start in lymph nodes or other organs of the lymph system, and the lymphoma may spread throughout the body, including to the brain or bone marrow. Primary CNS lymphoma starts in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), and does not start somewhere else in the body and spread to the central nervous system.
