Anaplastic large-cell lymphomas (ALCLs) are agroup of CD30-positive non-Hodgkin lymphomasthat are linked by common morphologic andimmunophenotypic features but have varyingclinical and genetic characteristics. The World HealthOrganization classification currently recognizes threesubtypes of ALCL: systemic anaplastic lymphomakinase-positive ALCL, systemic anaplastic lymphomakinase-negative (ALK-) ALCL, and primary cutaneousALCL. Here we present a 42-year-old man with ahistory of systemic ALK- ALCL, who was in remissionfor six months before relapsing with skin-limitedanaplastic large-cell lymphoma.
