Systematizing of different diseases and skin disorders is quite difficult. Different authors make classifications according to numerous criteria. Pseudolymphomas are reactive lymphocytic proliferations that appear in the skin and resemble a malignant lymphoma.
Different classifications exist for cutaneous pseudolymphomas. The broadest classification differentiates them into 6 groups, but the most commonly used is the classification based on clinical and morphological criteria.
According to the latest classification (1998), they are divided into cutaneous T-cell pseudolymphomas and - cutaneous B-cell pseudolymphomas.
The evidence from the histopathological analysis is of utmost important for the accurate diagnosis.
Key words: Cutaneous pseudolymphomas, Classification.
