Does anyone know what PL means in this medical/chemotherapy context :

Chimiothérapie pré-phase par
CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE + VINCRISTINE

4 cycles R-CHOP + 3 PL


Thanks!

    PL should mean ponction lombaire.
    Chemotherapy may be injected by repeated lumbar punctures or they may be diagnostic spinal taps.

    P.S. : Have you read the answers to your previous questions?

    Yes, lumbar puncture is also the correct technical term in English, and this is the term you would find (or shortened to LP) in a medical document.

    In more common language, however, we say spinal tap in English.
