Abstract

We elaborate on the diagnosis of CD30 positive cutaneous lymphoproliferative conditions including the various clinical and pathological presentations, our understanding of its pathomechanisms and prognostic implications. The most common reactive conditions that can simulate CD30 lymphoproliferative conditions, including arthropod bite reactions, various viral infections, pityriasis lichenoides and lymphocytic papules in myelodysplastic syndrome, are discussed in detail.
