Terms and Abbreviations Used in Studies of Cutaneous Lymphoproliferative Phenomena
This chapter addresses the nomenclature of cutaneous lymphoproliferative phenomena, a subject which is complex, confusing, and constantly evolving. Three tables are provided. The first (Table 1) provides definitions for standard and some not so standard abbreviations in current use. Only the definitions, with limited or no discussion are provided here, since to do more would entail an entire volume on its own. Pages in this book where these terms are used are indicated in the index and from them further references may be obtained. While many of these terms are rather obvious, a number are not so obvious. In some cases an abbreviation or term means one thing in one field, and another in another field, both of which interface with cutaneous lymphoproliferative studies. For example, several very different terms and abbreviations are used to denote allergic contact dermatitis, an entity studied by both clinical dermatologists and clinical and research immunologists for many years. “APC” can denote both “antigen presenting cell”, as well as a fluorescent dye.
