Cutaneous ALCL is closely related to the benign disorder lymphomatoid papulosis and the term "cutaneous lymphoproliferative disorder"40 has been suggested for those cases with overlapping features. Whether such a term is appropriate in a lymphoma classification is a moot point and in recognition of this, this entity is included under the subheading "T-cell neoplasm of uncertain malignant potential."
