Answer by  gland9 (16)

Hodgkin's lymphoma is marked by the presence of a very unique type of malignant cell. These cells are known as Reed-Sternberg cells or lacunar histiocytes. They are typically either multinucleated, or have a bi-lobed nucleus with an "owl's eye" appearance. Any Lymphoma without these special malignant cells is considered Non-Hodgkin's.
