cutaneous CD30+ T-cell lymphoma

CD30+ cutaneous lymphoma; Cutaneous CD30-positive T-cell Lymphoma

An association between classical Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL) and mycosis fungoides (MF) or lymphomatoid papulosis has been reported in the literature.

However, there can be considerable morphologic and immunophenotypic overlap between cHL and nodal involvement by CD30-positive T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders (CD30-T-LPD).

cHL is less often associated with MF and primary cutaneous CD30-T-LPD than thought and that the coexpression of CD30 and CD15 in these TCLs may lead to a mistaken diagnosis of cHL. (22367293)
