The expression of myelomonocytic antigens (CD11c, CD11b, CDw12, CD13, CD14, CD15, CD68, lysozyme, [[Alpha].sub.1]-antitrypsin) in ALCL has been previously reported.[1-8] Approximately 15% to 20% of classic ALCLs express CD15 and often share morphological similarities with Hodgkin disease, which has led to the introduction of the provisional entity called Hodgkin-like or Hodgkin-related ALCL.[1] The expression of myelomonocytic antigens in ALCL often has been associated with diagnostic difficulties.
