Summary of "Subcutaneous Panniculitis-Like T Cell Lymphoma: Approach to Differential Diagnosis on Cytology."

Sighting a case of subcutaneous panniculitis-like T cell lymphoma (SPTCL) in cytology is very rare in a clinical scenario. Among the differential diagnoses (D/D) of a subcutaneous nodule undergoing fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), it is hardly considered in the list. The common D/D on cytology would be panniculitis or a non-SPTCL lymphoma. To make a correct cytological diagnosis, the pathologist has to meticulously observe the type of inflammatory infiltrate, their morphology, the intimate admixture of the fat lobules, and background necrosis or macrophages. This article describes the cytological picture, D/D, and the prognostic factors associated with SPTCL in a young male. He was suspected of SPTCL after FNAC and later confirmed on histopathology with specific immunomarkers. We do not recommend the confirmation of SPTCL on cytology however, we would like to stress that it can be picked up and differentiated from its mimickers on FNAC.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of panniculitis characterized by recurrent episodes of fever accompanied by the eruption of single or multiple erythematous subcutaneous nodules on the lower extremities. They normally resolve, but tend to leave depressions in the skin. The condition is most often seen in women, alone or in association with other disorders.

B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.

General term for inflammation of adipose tissue, usually of the skin, characterized by reddened subcutaneous nodules.

Malignant lymphoma characterized by the presence of immunoblasts with uniformly round-to-oval nuclei, one or more prominent nucleoli, and abundant cytoplasm. This class may be subdivided into plasmacytoid and clear-cell types based on cytoplasmic characteristics. A third category, pleomorphous, may be analogous to some of the peripheral T-cell lymphomas (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, PERIPHERAL) recorded in both the United States and Japan.

A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1 isolated from mature T4 cells in patients with T-lymphoproliferation malignancies. It causes adult T-cell leukemia (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), T-cell lymphoma (LYMPHOMA, T-CELL), and is involved in mycosis fungoides, SEZARY SYNDROME and tropical spastic paraparesis (PARAPARESIS, TROPICAL SPASTIC).
