Lymphocyte-depleted classical Hodgkin lymphoma
Help me code for diagnosis year :
Prior to modern therapy the course of LDCHL was aggressive and it has remained so in some parts of Europe and developing countries.
Per WHO, Hodgkin lymphomas are primarily B-cell lymphomas. If the medical record states B-cell, code 6. Since there are Hodgkin lymphomas that are not B-cell, the default grade is 9 (unknown) where the documentation does not specifically state B-cell.
For more information on this neoplasm, see the NCI website: http://www.cancer.gov/types/lymphoma/hp/adult-hodgkin-treatment-pdq or http://www.cancer.gov/types/lymphoma/patient/adult-hodgkin-treatment-pdq
