WHO-EORTC classification for cutaneous lymphomas.
The characteristic features of the different primary cutaneous lymphomas and other hematologic neoplasms frequently presenting in the skin are described, and differences with the previous classification schemes are discussed.
EORTC classification for primary cutaneous lymphomas: a proposal from the Cutaneous Lymphoma Study Group of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer.
The basic principles of this new classification, as well as the characteristic features of the different disease entities, are described and survival data of 626 patients with primary cutaneous lymphomas derived from the registry of the Dutch Cutaneous Lymphoma Working Group are presented.
Dermoscopy of pigmented skin lesions: results of a consensus meeting via the Internet.
The virtual Consensus Net Meeting on Dermoscopy represents a valid tool for better standardization of the dermoscopic terminology and, moreover, opens up a new territory for diagnosing and managing pigmented skin lesions.
The specific dermatoses of pregnancy revisited and reclassified: results of a retrospective two-center study on 505 pregnant patients.
WHO/EORTC classification of cutaneous lymphomas 2005: histological and molecular aspects
This article reviews the histological, phenotypical, and molecular genetic features of the various nosological entities included in the new WHO/EORTC classification of cutaneous lymphomas.
Follicular mucinosis: a critical reappraisal of clinicopathologic features and association with mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome.
Criteria previously reported to differentiate idiopathic from lymphoma-associated FM proved ineffective and, in analogy to localized pagetoid reticulosis, small-plaque parapsoriasis, and so-called solitary mycosis fungoides, idiopATHic FM may represent a form of localized cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

The incongruity between the indolent clinical course and the worrying histopathologic and molecular features poses difficulties in classifying cases unambiguously as benign or malignant, and it may be better to refer to them with a descriptive term such as “cutaneous nodular proliferation of pleomorphic T lymphocytes of undetermined significance,” rather than forcing them into one or the other category.

It is shown that Borrelia burgdorferi, DNA is present in skin lesions from a small proportion of patients (18%) with various types of CBCL, which in analogy to Helicobacter pylori‐associated MALT‐lymphomas, may be cured with antibiotic therapy against Borrelian infection.
