The possibility that some lymphomas arise primarily in the skin and tend to remain localized to it for a long time, without a systemic spread, is a relatively new acquisition. In the present study, a review is made of primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas according to lymphoma's classifications proposed in the last years. The clinicopathologic features that differentiate primary cutaneous B-cell lymphomas from primary nodal and secondary cutaneous B cell lymphomas are underlined. Moreover, the similarities between primary cutaneous, B-cell lymphomas and other extra-nodal B-cell lymphomas (MALT lymphomas) are emphasized, reporting their diagnostic parameters. Primary cutaneous marginal zone B-cell lymphoma, a newly described entity, is also discussed.
