Abstract

Cutaneous lymphomas, like other lymphomas, are systemic diseases by definition. Therefore, surgery has limited indications. However, primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (CBCL), such as follicle center lymphomas and large cell primary cutaneous CD30+ T-cell lymphomas, may present as a single nodule in the skin. In these cases, because investigation on tumor material is necessary, an excision biopsy might be a good alternative to an incisional biopsy. In the case of surgical treatment of a nodule in primary cutaneous lymphomas, a safety margin of at least 1 cm should be applied, although there are no supporting clinical trails.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
