Question
Histology--Heme & Lymphoid Neoplasms: What code should I use for a path report with this histology: Diffuse Large B cell lymphoma (50%) & Folicular Lymphoma 3A (50%)?

Discussion


Answer
Code histology to 9680/3, Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

Assuming these two histologies are present simultaneously in the same anatomic location, use Rule M4 -- this is one primary. Module 6, Rule PH11 states that when diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and another non-Hodgkin lymphoma (follicular lymphoma) occur together in the same anatomic site to code to 9680/3 since it is the more aggressive histology.
