Abstract

Primary cutaneous B-cell lymphoma—primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma; primary cutaneous marginal zone lymphoma; and primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell, leg type—is a heterogeneous group with a variety of clinical and histological presentations. Until recently, the molecular bases of these disease subtypes have been unclear. We and others have identified the specific genetic characteristics that distinguish these subtypes from their respective systemic counterparts. These molecular features can improve diagnoses, determine the likelihood of concurrent or future systemic disease, and enable the rational design of novel clinical trials.
