Primary cutaneous lymphomas are currently classified by the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) classification or the World Health Organization (WHO) classification, but both systems have shortcomings. In particular, differences in the classification of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas other than mycosis fungoides, Sezary syndrome,(More)
In the WHO classification, subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma (SPTL) is defined as a distinct type of T-cell lymphoma with an aggressive clinical behavior. Recent studies suggest that distinction should be made between SPTL with an alpha/beta T-cell phenotype (SPTL-AB) and SPTL with a gammadelta T-cell phenotype (SPTL-GD), but studies are(More)
PURPOSE In the new WHO-European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (WHO-EORTC) classification for cutaneous lymphomas three major groups of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma (CBCL) are distinguished: primary cutaneous marginal zone B-cell lymphoma (PCMZL) and primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma (PCFCL) with a good prognosis, and(More)
Primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (CBCL) represent approximately 20% to 25% of all primary cutaneous lymphomas. With the advent of the World Health Organization-European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Consensus Classification for Cutaneous Lymphomas in 2005, uniform terminology and classification for this rare group of neoplasms(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small RNA species that regulate gene expression post-transcriptionally and are aberrantly expressed in many malignancies including lymphoma. However, the role of miRNAs in the pathogenesis of T-cell lymphoid malignancies is poorly understood. Previously we examined the miRNA profile of Sézary syndrome (Sz), a leukemia of skin-homing(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of radiotherapy in patients with primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma (CBCL) classified according to the criteria of the World Health Organization-European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (WHO-EORTC) classification. DESIGN Multicenter, 20-year, retrospective, cohort analysis. SETTING Eight dermatology(More)
UNLABELLED The new WHO/EORTC classification for cutaneous lymphomas comprises mature T-cell and natural killer (NK)-cell neoplasms, mature B-cell neoplasms, and immature hematopoietic malignancies. It reflects the unique features of lymphoproliferative diseases of the skin, and at the same time it is as compatible as possible with the concepts underlying(More)
The diagnostic and prognostic importance of recurrent chromosomal aberrations in systemic B cell lymphoma is well documented. In contrast, limited data exist on genetic changes in primary cutaneous B cell lymphoma. In this study we investigated chromosomal aberration patterns in two types of primary cutaneous B cell lymphoma with a different clinical(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the clinical relevance of genomic aberrations in primary cutaneous large B-cell lymphoma (PCLBCL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Skin biopsy samples of 31 patients with a PCLBCL classified as either primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma (PCFCL; n = 19) or PCLBCL, leg type (n = 12), according to the WHO-European Organisation for Research(More)
Sézary syndrome (Sz) is a malignancy of CD4+ memory skin-homing T cells and presents with erythroderma, lymphadenopathy, and peripheral blood involvement. To gain more insight into the molecular features of Sz, oligonucleotide array analysis was performed comparing gene expression patterns of CD4+ T cells from peripheral blood of patients with Sz with those(More)
