Systemic, primary cutaneous, and breast implant-associated ALK-negative anaplastic large-cell lymphomas present similar biologic features despite distinct clinical behavior.

Virchows Arch 2019 Apr 6. Epub 2019 Apr 6.

Département de Biopathologie Cellulaire et Tissulaire des Tumeurs, CHU Montpellier, Hôpital Gui De Chauliac, 34275, Montpellier, France.

Despite distinct clinical presentation and outcome, systemic, primary cutaneous, and breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphomas (S-, PC-, BI-ALCL) ALK-negative (ALK-) show similar histopathological features including the presence of the "hallmark" cells with horseshoe-shaped nuclei and CD30 protein expression. The purpose was to better characterize these three entities using immunohistochemistry and FISH (Fluorescent in situ hybridization) to identify biomarkers differently expressed and that might be involved in their pathogenesis. Twenty-two S-ALCL ALK-, 13 PC-ALCL, and 2 BI-ALCL were included. Read More

Mycosis Fungoides Associated With Lesions in the Spectrum of Primary Cutaneous CD30+ Lymphoproliferative Disorders: The Same Process or 3 Coexisting Lymphomas?

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Departments of Dermatology.

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, primary cutaneous CD30 lymphoproliferative disorders (pc CD30 LPD) being the second most prevalent. There is evidence that MF and pc CD30 LPD may coexist and share T-cell clonality, suggesting a common origin. These findings were supported by a T-cell receptor clonality assessment by the polymerase chain reaction coupled with capillary electrophoresis, although results produced by this method may be ambiguous.

Existing and Emerging Therapies for Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma.

J Cutan Med Surg 2019 Apr 3:1203475419840629. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

1 Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are a heterogeneous group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas characterized by an infiltration of malignant monoclonal T lymphocytes into the skin. Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common subtype, and the rarer Sézary syndrome (SS), are considered the classical forms of CTCL, which, because of a varying presentation and lack of genetic and immunophenotypical markers, can often have a delayed diagnosis. With skin-directed topical treatment being the mainstay of therapy in the early stages, there is an absence of long-term curative therapies for advanced disease. Read More

Challenges of driving CD30-directed CAR-T cells to the clinic.

BMC Cancer 2019 Mar 6;19(1):203. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, 27599, USA.

Chimeric antigen receptor T (CAR-T) cells are a promising new treatment for patients with relapsed or refractory hematologic malignancies, including lymphoma. Given the success of CAR-T cells directed against CD19, new targets are being developed and tested, since not all lymphomas express CD19. CD30 is promising target as it is universally expressed in virtually all classical Hodgkin lymphomas, anaplastic large cell lymphomas, and in a proportion of other lymphoma types, including cutaneous T cell lymphomas and diffuse large B cell lymphomas.

Genetics of Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).

Aesthet Surg J 2019 Jan;39(Supplement_1):S14-S20

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.

Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), a newly included provisional entity in the 2016 revision of the World Health Organization classification, is a distinct form of CD30-positive T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma that arises in association with a breast implant after reconstructive or cosmetic surgery. In addition to its characteristic clinical presentation, recent studies using next-generation sequencing have revealed that BIA-ALCL has a unique pattern of genetic alterations. BIA-ALCL is consistently negative for ALCL-related gene rearrangements involving ALK, DUSP22, and TP63. Read More

The spectrum of CD30+ T cell lymphoproliferative disorders in the skin.

Chin Clin Oncol 2019 Feb 9;8(1). Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Division of Hematologic Malignancies and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation, Department of Medical Oncology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Primary cutaneous CD30+ T cell lymphoproliferative disorders (pcCD30+ T cell LPDs) are a spectrum of pre-malignant to frankly neoplastic lymphoproliferations that comprise lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP), primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (pcALCL), and borderline lesions. Although the atypical T cells that are the hallmark of these disorders share the expression of CD30, as the identifying marker, the clinical presentation, histological features and clinical course are vastly different. Furthermore, histopathologic features of pcCD30+ T cell LPDs may overlap with other cutaneous and systemic lymphomas. Read More

Antibody-Based Therapies for Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma.

Am J Clin Dermatol 2019 Feb;20(1):115-122

University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Blvd, Unit 1452, Houston, TX, 77030-4009, USA.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) are a group of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas that present in the skin. In early-stage disease, the course is generally chronic and indolent; however, in advanced stages of disease, therapies rarely provide long-lasting responses, and the only potential curative therapy is allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation. This has led to the search for novel targeted therapies to better treat more advanced stages of CTCLs that cannot be controlled by typical treatment regimens. Read More

Common origin of sequential cutaneous CD30+ lymphoproliferations with nodal involvement evidenced by genome-wide clonal evolution.

Histopathology 2019 Mar 31;74(4):654-662. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France.

Aims: This study sought to clarify the molecular pathways underlying the putative evolution from lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) to cutaneous anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (c-ALCL) and lymph node invasion (LNI).

Methods And Results: We analysed nine sequential tumours from the same patient presenting with parallel evolution of LyP (n = 3) and c-ALCL (n = 1) with LNI (n = 1), combined with systemic diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) (n = 4). Clonality analysis showed a common clonal T-cell origin in the five CD30+ lesions, and a common clonal B-cell origin in the four DLBCL relapses. Read More

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Jul;40(7):519-522

Department of Pathology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA.

Anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) was first described in 1985 by Stein et al and is a clinically, morphologically, and immunophenotypically heterogeneous neoplasm characterized by ALK expression, rearrangement of the ALK gene, and most characteristically its occurrence in children. Clinically, cutaneous ALK+ ALCL can be divided into primary (cutaneous forms) and the much more common, secondary dissemination by a systemic lymphoma. Systemic ALK+ ALCL represents 10%-15% of childhood non-Hodgkin lymphoma and generally presents with advanced systemic disease. Read More

The Pathological Spectrum of Systemic Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL).

Cancers (Basel) 2018 Apr 4;10(4). Epub 2018 Apr 4.

Institute of Pathology and Neuropathology and Comprehensive Cancer Center Tübingen, Eberhard-Karls-University, Liebermeisterstraße 8, 72076 Tübingen, Germany.

Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) represents a group of malignant T-cell lymphoproliferations that share morphological and immunophenotypical features, namely strong CD30 expression and variable loss of T-cell markers, but differ in clinical presentation and prognosis. The recognition of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) fusion proteins as a result of chromosomal translocations or inversions was the starting point for the distinction of different subgroups of ALCL. According to their distinct clinical settings and molecular findings, the 2016 revised World Health Organization (WHO) classification recognizes four different entities: systemic ALK-positive ALCL (ALK+ ALCL), systemic ALK-negative ALCL (ALK− ALCL), primary cutaneous ALCL (pC-ALCL), and breast implant-associated ALCL (BI-ALCL), the latter included as a provisional entity.

Purpose Of Review: Given the rarity of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), studies evaluating new therapies have typically grouped ALCL together with other peripheral T cell lymphomas (PTCL). Thus, the treatment paradigm for ALCL largely mirrors that of PTCL in general. In this review, we discuss the current standard of care as well as emerging therapies, including antibody-based drugs, in systemic ALCL as well as primary cutaneous and breast implant-associated ALCL.

SATB1 Defines a Subtype of Cutaneous CD30 Lymphoproliferative Disorders Associated with a T-Helper 17 Cytokine Profile.

J Invest Dermatol 2018 08 3;138(8):1795-1804. Epub 2018 Mar 3.

Department of Dermatology and Venerology, Peking University First Hospital, Beijing, China; Beijing Key Laboratory of Molecular Diagnosis on Dermatoses, Beijing, China. Electronic address:

Cutaneous CD30 lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs), including lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) and primary cutaneous anaplastic large-cell lymphoma, comprise the second most common group of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. Previously, we reported that special SATB1, a thymocyte-specific chromatin organizer, was overexpressed and promoted malignant T-cell proliferation in a portion of CD30 LPDs. Here, we investigated the expression pattern of SATB1 in CD30 LPDs with a large cohort of patient samples, and examined the potential of SATB1 as a molecular marker to classify CD30 LPDs with differential clinicopathological behaviors.

A rare localised nasal CD30 primary cutaneous T-cell lymphoma following liver transplantation.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Nov 4;2017. Epub 2017 Nov 4.

Scripps Clinic, Scripps Center for Organ Transplantation, La Jolla, California, USA.

Cutaneous T-cell post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a rare clinical presentation that can potentially turn aggressive in solid-organ transplant recipients if not detected and intervened on early. We encountered a rare case of rapidly worsening primary cutaneous CD30-positive, Epstein-Barr virus-negative anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) of T-cell origin, manifesting as an isolated nasal tip lesion in a 71-year-old man 4 years after orthotopic liver transplantation. Excisional biopsy with partial rhinectomy showed subepithelial diffuse infiltration of medium-to-large lymphoid cells having round-to-irregular nuclei, partially condensed chromatin and prominent nucleoli.

Understanding CD30 biology and therapeutic targeting: a historical perspective providing insight into future directions.

Blood Cancer J 2017 09 8;7(9):e603. Epub 2017 Sep 8.

Department of Haematology, Peter McCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

CD30 is a member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily. It is characteristically expressed in certain hematopoietic malignancies, including anaplastic large cell lymphoma and Hodgkin lymphoma, among others. The variable expression of CD30 on both normal and malignant lymphoid cells has focused research efforts on understanding the pathogenesis of CD30 upregulation, its contribution to lymphomagenesis through anti-apoptotic mechanisms, and its effect on cell survival.
