ATCLL with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphomalike features
Definition: In adult T-cell lymphoma/leukemia (ATLL), the neoplastic lymphoid cells are usually medium-sized to large, often with pronounced nuclear pleomorphism compatible with the diagnosis of diffuse pleomorphic peripheral T-cell lymphoma. Some patients have a rare morphologic variant of ATLL, of angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AILT)-like type.
proliferation of high endothelial venules
various infiltrating inflammatory cells including plasma cells and eosinophils.
The lymphoma cells are medium-to-large size with clear cytoplasm.
