Their clinical behavior is generally indolent, and only occasionally is the development of extracutaneous disease observed. Since the 1980s, primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas have been considered a specific group of lymphomas, differentiated from both T-cell lymphomas and from secondary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas. Both the EORTC and the WHO have proposed alternative classifications for these entities, with significant discrepancies that were finally resolved through the development of a new classification (WHO-EORTC classification for cutaneous lymphomas), which standardizes criteria that had previously been different. We present two new cases of primary cutaneous diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the leg according to the new classification.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50677||ISSN:||0001-7310||DOI:||10.1016/S0001-7310(05)73145-8||Source:||Actas Dermo-Sifiliograficas[ISSN 0001-7310],v. 96, p. 607-611|
