Categorization of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (PCBCL) other than marginal zone (MZL) represents a diagnostic challenge with relevant prognostic implications. The 2008 WHO lymphoma classification recognizes only primary cutaneous follicular center cell lymphoma (PCFCCL) and primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, leg type (PCDLBCL-LT), whereas the previous 2005 WHO/EORTC classification also included an intermediate form, namely PCDLBCL, other. We conducted a retrospective, multicentric, consensus-based revision of the clinicopathologic characteristics of 161 cases of PCBCL other than MZL...

DISEASE OVERVIEW: Approximately one-fourth of cutaneous lymphomas are B-cell derived and are generally classified into three distinct subgroups: primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma (PCFCL), primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma (PCMZL), and primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, leg type (PCDLBCL, LT). DIAGNOSIS: Diagnosis and disease classification is based on histologic review and immunohistochemical staining of an appropriate skin biopsy. Pathologic review and an appropriate staging evaluation are necessary to distinguish primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas from systemic B-cell lymphomas with secondary skin involvement...

Plasma cell proliferations in specific cutaneous lesions of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma(AITL) are very uncommon. Here, we report a case of clonal plasma cell proliferation in skin with heavy-chain-immunoglobulin-isotype-switch after cutaneous disease progression. Histopathologically, initial plaque lesions were suggestive of marginal-zone B-cell-lymphoma. Nevertheless, this 77-year-old lady was diagnosed with AITL after the progression of skin lesions from plaques to nodular tumors. A lymph node biopsy confirmed the diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Primary cutaneous marginal zone B-cell lymphoma (PCMZL) has rarely been reported in patients younger than 20 years. OBJECTIVES: To report our experience with PCMZL in the paediatric/adolescent age group. METHODS: Medical records of patients diagnosed with PCMZL before age 20 years and managed at two cutaneous lymphoma clinics in the United States and Israel in 1992-2015 were reviewed. RESULTS: The study group included 11 patients (6 girls) of median age 16 years (range 6-19...

Although familial aggregation of lymphoproliferative disorders has been described, heredity has not been implicated in the etiology of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (PCBCL). We report herein the first case of 2 young monozygotic twins with PCBCL. The first twin was an 18-year-old woman when she presented with multiple skin nodules on the thorax and head. Histology showed an atypical small B-cell proliferation, consistent with primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma (PCMZL). Molecular genetics studies demonstrated B-cell clonality...

Thymocyte selection-associated high-mobility group box (TOX) is aberrantly expressed in cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. In a recent study, TOX expression was noted unexpectedly in the follicle center (germinal center) B-cells of reactive lymph nodes and tonsils, used as external controls. To evaluate whether TOX is also expressed by cutaneous B-cell lymphomas, TOX immunohistochemistry was performed on skin biopsies of 44 patients with primary and secondary cutaneous B-cell proliferations. TOX was expressed not only in the reactive follicle center cells of lymph nodes, tonsils, cutaneous lymphoid hyperplasia, and primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphomas, but also by the neoplastic follicle center cells of 16/17 patients with primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma (PCFCL) and 7/7 patients with cutaneous manifestations of systemic follicular lymphoma (FL)...

Many malignant hematologic neoplasms can directly and indirectly involve the skin with lesions that are disfiguring, painful, and compromise integumentary function. The majority of lymphomas that directly infiltrate the skin are of T-cell origin but B-cell lymphomas, and other hematologic neoplasms, including acute myeloid and lymphoblastic leukemias, can also have cutaneous involvement, whereas some have an indolent course, eg, mycosis fungoides and marginal zone lymphoma, and easily respond to localized therapy with overall survival (OS) measured in years to decades...

We present a remarkable case of primary cutaneous nocardiosis with pulmonary dissemination due to Nocardia takedensis in a 76-year-old man suffering from marginal zone lymphoma and hypogammaglobulinaemia. We also discuss an alternative treatment to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, which could be contraindicated due to haematological and cutaneous toxicities. This case report is of interest due to the emergence of cutaneous nocardiosis in dermatology.

Patients with a lymphoma have an increased risk of developing a second lymphoproliferative disorder. The association of nodal Hodgkin lymphoma and primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma (MALT type) is exceptional, and only very few cases have been documented. Anetoderma represents a circumscribed loss or rarefication of elastic fibers. Different underlying processes may result in anetoderma, including cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma. We report a 50-year-old male patient with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated nodal Hodgkin lymphoma who presented with disseminated anetodermic skin lesions...

We present a case of a 65-year-old Hispanic man with a history of disseminated cutaneous coccidioidomycosis who presented to the emergency room for progressively worsening abdominal pain associated with shortness of breath. The patient was found to have pleural effusion and moderate ascites on physical examination. Abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography scan were consistent with moderate ascites and portal hypertension but negative for both liver cirrhosis and for venous or arterial thrombosis. Cytology of ascitic fluid was suggestive of portal hypertension and was negative for infection...

BACKGROUND: The age-adjusted annual incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) has risen worldwide. This trend may be affected by the secular increase in height and the sharp upswing in adolescent overweight; these drive increased insulinlike growth factor 1 and chronic inflammation, which may play an etiologic role. This study examined the association of the body mass index (BMI) and height of adolescents with NHL subtypes, which have been insufficiently evaluated. METHODS: Health-related data on 2,352,988 Israeli adolescents, aged 16 to 19 years, who were examined between 1967 and 2011 were linked to the Israel National Cancer Registry to derive the NHL incidence up to December 31, 2012 (4021 cases)...

Marginal zone lymphomas have been associated with several infectious agents covering both viral and bacterial pathogens and in some cases a clear aetiological role has been established. Pathogenetic mechanisms are currently not completely understood. However, the role of chronic stimulation of the host immune response with persistent lymphocyte activation represents the most convincing explanation for lymphoproliferation. Gastric MALT lymphoma is strictly associated with Helicobacter pylori infection and various eradicating protocols, developed due to increasing antibiotic resistance, represent the first line therapy for gastric MALT...

BACKGROUND: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is a relatively common malignancy in pediatric patients; however, a small subgroup have unusual lymphoma subtypes for the pediatric population. PROCEDURE: The Children's Oncology Group Rare and Cutaneous NHL registry's (protocol ANHL 04B1) main objectives were to determine the pathologic, biologic, and clinical features of rare and cutaneous pediatric NHL and establish a bank of centrally reviewed tissue specimens. We report the clinical data, treatment data, and outcome for rare pediatric NHL...

Primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas are a heterogeneous group of mature B-cells neoplasms with tropism for the skin, whose biology and clinical course differ significantly from the equivalent nodal lymphomas. The most indolent forms comprise the primary cutaneous marginal zone and follicle center B-cell lymphomas that despite the excellent prognosis have cutaneous recurrences very commonly. The most aggressive forms include the primary cutaneous large B-cell lymphomas, consisting in two major groups: the leg type, with poor prognosis, and others, the latter representing a heterogeneous group of lymphomas from which specific entities are supposed to be individualized over time, such as intravascular large B-cell lymphomas...

A 60-year-old man developed a rubbery thickening and erythema of his left lateral upper and lower eyelids and lateral canthus over several months. He was treated for an extended period of time for blepharitis and chalazia. Incisional biopsy eventually disclosed microscopically a hypercellular lymphoid population sparing the epidermis that surrounded adnexal structures and infiltrated between orbicularis muscle fibers. Immunohistochemically, the lesion was found to be composed of neoplastic, kappa-restricted B cells with an equal number of reactive T cells and small reactive follicles...

Primary cutaneous lymphomas are non-Hodgkin lymphomas, which are broadly divided into cutaneous T-cell lymphomas and cutaneous B-cell lymphomas. These classifications include numerous distinct entities, all with varying clinical presentations and disease courses. Herein, we will review the cutaneous T-cell lymphomas, including Mycosis Fungoides, Sézary syndrome, CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders, as well as other less common entities. Cutaneous B-cell lymphomas will also be discussed, including primary cutaneous marginal zoned lymphoma, cutaneous follicle-center lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, leg type, as well as other less common entities...

IMPORTANCE: Primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma (PCMZL) is a low-grade malignant B-cell lymphoma that appears in the skin without any extracutaneous manifestations. Therapeutic mainstays for PCMZL have primarily included radiotherapy and surgery. Intralesional steroids have been found to resolve the lesions caused by PCMZL, but there is a dearth of literature regarding this therapy indicating that this is not a commonly favored treatment option. OBSERVATIONS: We present a case of 60-year-old woman who presented with PCMZL on her right eyebrow...

BACKGROUND: The increasing incidence of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (PCBCLs) presents new challenges for clinicians. Despite advances in the clinical and pathologic characterization of PCBCL, the significance of the current staging approach as a risk profiling tool and the effect of various treatments on outcome remain unclear. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients who presented with a diagnosis of PCBCL seen at The Ohio State University between 1998 and 2012...
