Background Data on management of gray zone lymphoma (GZL) in children and adolescents are scarce. Procedure This retrospective study assessed clinical characteristics and outcome in six Austrian patients with GZL less than 18 years of age (male-to-female ratio: 1:1; median age: 15.8 years). Results Two patients each had a classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL)-like and composite GZL subtype, and one patient each had a large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (LBCL)-like and sequential GZL subtype. All had advanced disease with mediastinal and extranodal involvement. Five patients received an LBCL- and one patient a cHL-directed polychemotherapy +/- radiotherapy. Out of the former patients, three survived, including two who relapsed and underwent high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell rescue. The latter patient survived. Conclusions GZL remains a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge, necessitating the development of novel treatment concepts performed in a prospective setting.
