Cutaneous tumors of hematopoetic origin

This diagnostic class is predominantly reserved for primary cutaneous tumors and therefore similar lesions should be excluded from the spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, liver, and bone marrow. Secondary skin involvement by tumors of hematopoetic origin should be noted as part of the distribution of sites affected but should not be diagnosed as primary cutaneous neoplasms.
