In the WHO classification, the majority of Hodgkin-like ALCL cases as defined by the REAL classification are considered to be CHL. However, establishing a histological diagnosis for the gray zone between CHL and ALCL is often confusing. In this study, we re-evaluated such cases by performing immunohistochemistry with antibodies against ...

The Hodgkin-Reed/Sternberg (HRS) cells of classical Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) aberrantly express up to 7 different receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK) with extensive heterogeneity regarding the number and combinations of expressed RTKs in individual cases and a more prominent coexpression in nodular-sclerosis (ns) than mixed-cellularity (mc) HL. To investigate whether RTK expression ...

Lymphoproliferations are generally diagnosed via histomorphology and immunohistochemistry. Although mostly conclusive, occasionally the differential diagnosis between reactive lesions and malignant lymphomas is difficult. In such cases molecular clonality studies of immunoglobulin (Ig)/T-cell receptor (TCR) rearrangements can be useful. Here we address the issue of clonality assessment in 106 histologically defined ...
