Answer

LRHL constitutes 5% of cases. In LRHL, Reed-Sternberg cells of the classical or lacunar type are observed, with a background infiltrate of lymphocytes. It requires immunohistochemical diagnosis. Some cases may have a nodular pattern. Clinically, the presentation and survival patterns are similar to those for MCHL.
