Peripheral T-cell lymphoma, not otherwise specified (PTCL, NOS) includes various diseases. Attempts have been made to identify distinct properties of disease within the PTCL, NOS classification and evaluate their significance to prognosis. Comprehensive gene expression analysis and evaluation of genomic abnormalities have successfully identified specific diseases from heterogeneous PTCL, NOS cases. For example, cases with properties of T follicular helper cells have been identified and classified as an entity resembling angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), based on both immunohistochemistry and genomic features. Here, we focus on the molecular pathology of PTCL, NOS and discuss recent changes relevant to its classification.
