Answer

Mycosis fungoides is not discussed in this subsection but is addressed further on.

Primary cutaneous CD30-positive lymphoproliferative disorder

The term CD30-positive lymphoproliferative disorders encompasses entities such as anaplastic large cell lymphoma (primary cutaneous and systemic type) and lymphomatoid papulosis. Although at times pathologically indistinct, these entities are clinically distinct. Thus, clinicopathologic correlation in the management of these disorders is desirable.
