Primary cutaneous CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs), including lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP), anaplastic and nonanaplastic CD30+ large-cell lymphoma, and borderline cases, comprise a clinical and histologic spectrum. Primary cutaneous and primary nodal CD30+ anaplastic large-cell lymphomas (ALCLs) are distinct clinical entities that have identical morphologic features but differ in age of onset, immunophenotype, and prognosis. It can be difficult to distinguish primary cutaneous from… CONTINUE READING
