Definition

General term for a group of cancers that originate in the lymphatic system. Unable to determine if Hodgkin or non-Hodgkin type. This is not a commonly used pathology term.

Abstractor Notes

This NOS histology is a generic disease description. DCO cases or path report only cases may stay in this classification. In most cases, an NOS histology is only the working diagnosis; the physician will run further diagnostic procedures and look for various clinical presentations to identify a more specific disease.

Further review of the medical record should be performed to look for the tests listed as definitive diagnosis. When a more specific diagnosis is identified, the histology should be changed to the more specific neoplasm name and code.

For 9590/3 malignant lymphoma, NOS, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, classical Hodgkin lymphoma, and any specific Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas would be a more specific histology.

See the histology tables (Appendix B of the Hematopoietic manual) for more information on NOS and more specific histologies.
