In addition, many types of cutaneous lymphoma can have similar histomorphologic features--for example, some tumoral lesions of mycosis fungoides (MF) with large cell transformation cannot be reliably distinguished from anaplastic large cell lymphoma or lymphomatoid papulosis by hematoxylin-eosin sections or even IHC.

Incorrect diagnoses occur mainly because many diseases are mistakenly diagnosed as spider bites, including many conditions much more prevalent and serious, such as staphylococcal or streptococcal infection, herpes simplex and zoster, erythema multiforme, diabetic ulcer, fungal infection, pyoderma gangrenosum, lymphomatoid papulosis, syphilis, and Lyme disease.
