Summary of "Aggressive B cell lymphomas in the 2017 revised WHO classification of tumors of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues."

The recent 2017 update of the World Health Organization classification of lymphomas has significant changes from the previous edition. Subtypes of large B cell lymphoma and related aggressive B cell lymphomas are addressed. Clinicopathological features of entities as related to morphology, immunophenotype, cell of origin, and molecular/genetic findings are reviewed with emphasis on changes or updates in findings. Specific subtypes addressed include: T cell/histiocyte-rich large B cell lymphoma, primary diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) of the CNS, primary cutaneous DLBCL leg-type, EBV-positive DLBCL, NOS, DLBCL associated with chronic inflammation, primary mediastinal large B cell lymphoma, intravascular large B cell lymphoma, ALK-positive large B cell lymphoma, plasmablastic lymphoma, primary effusion lymphoma, HHV8-positive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, NOS, Burkitt lymphoma, Burkitt-like lymphoma with 11q aberration, high-grade B cell lymphoma with MYC and BCL2 and/or BCL6 rearrangements, high grade B cell lymphoma, NOS, B cell lymphoma, unclassifiable, with features intermediate between DLBCL and classic Hodgkin lymphoma and large B cell lymphoma with IRF4 translocation. In addition, EBV positive mucocutaneous ulcer is addressed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A family of mesenchymal tumors composed of histologically and immunohistochemically distinctive perivascular epithelioid cells. These cells do not have a normal anatomic homolog. (From Fletcher CDM, et. al., World Health Organization Classification of Tumors: Pathology and Genetics of Tumors of Soft Tissue and Bone, 2002).

A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe. The majority of mantle-cell lymphomas are associated with a t(11;14) translocation resulting in overexpression of the CYCLIN D1 gene (GENES, BCL-1).

Clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders characterized by dysplasia in one or more hematopoietic cell lineages. They predominantly affect patients over 60, are considered preleukemic conditions, and have high probability of transformation into ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.

Glycoproteins with a wide distribution on hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cells and strongly expressed on MACROPHAGES. CD58 mediates cell adhesion by binding to CD2; (CD2 ANTIGENS); and this enhances antigen-specific T-cell activation.
