    Follicular Lymphoma International Prognostic Index (FLIPI)

    Estimates overall survival based on clinical information.
    When to Use
    Pearls/Pitfalls
    Why Use

    FLIPI is designed to be used in patients with follicular lymphoma and to risk stratify patients based on prognosis. This can help guide when and how to treat such patients.

    • The FLIPI, while a useful general prognostic tool, does not reliably predict those at diagnosis who will have an extremely rapid decline. Rather it assists with providing prognostic information. Ultimately, clinical judgement and comprehensive review of the patient’s previous workup are critical to make this assessment.
    • The GELF Criteria can help identify those patients with follicular lymphoma at higher risk for rapid disease progression and in whom immediate therapy may be needed.

    The FLIPI score is easy to use with information most providers will already have available. Clinical evaluation, laboratory testing, and imaging are all that is needed to risk stratify patients and estimate prognosis.
