Anaplastic large cell lymphoma
- There are 9 ICD-9-CM codes below 200.6 that define this diagnosis in greater detail. Do not use this code on a reimbursement claim.
- A peripheral (mature) t-cell lymphoma, consisting of usually large anaplastic, cd30 positive cells. The majority of cases are positive for the anaplastic large cell lymphoma (alk) protein. The most frequently seen genetic alteration is a t(2;5) translocation. Majority of patients present with advanced disease. The most important prognostic indicator is alk positivity, which has been associated with a favorable prognosis. (who, 2001)
- A rare aggressive form of lymphoma (cancer that begins in cells of the lymphatic system) that is usually of t-cell origin.
- A systemic, large-cell, non-hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the cd30 antigen. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and malignant histiocytosis.
- An aggressive (fast-growing) type of non-hodgkin lymphoma that is usually of the t-cell type. The cancer cells express a marker called cd30 or ki-1 on the surface, and may appear in the lymph nodes, skin, bones, soft tissues, lungs, or liver.
