Answer

DLBCL may be classified in several different ways. Common morphologic variants of DLBCL, not otherwise specified, include centroblastic, immunoblastic, anaplastic, and rare morphologic variants. Molecular subgroups include GCB and ABC. Immunohistochemical subgroups include CD5-positive DLBCL, GCB, and non-GCB.
