Leuk Lymphoma. 1995 Jun;18(1-2):17-25. doi: 10.3109/10428199509064918.


The problem of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is extensively reviewed by depicting the clinical, pathological and biological characteristics of the four main varieties of ALCL: common, Hodgkin's like/Hodgkin-related, lympho-histiocytic, and giant-cell rich. Special emphasis is given to the differential diagnosis between ALCL Hodgkin like and Hodgkin's disease in the light of possible therapeutical differences.
