* Please see the abbreviations below

For "basic morphology": Large: predominantly (>75%) large cells; Medium to large: mixture of medium-sized to large cells (≥25% each); Medium: predominantly (>75%) medium-sized cells; Small to medium: mixture of small to medium-sized cells (≥25% each); A+: presence of angioinvasion; A-: absence of angioinvasion; N+: presence of tissue necrosis; N-: absence of tissue necrosis

For immunophenotype: GB: granzyme B; PF: perforin; + (mostly positive): positive on lymphoma cells >50%; p+ (partially positive): 10-50% positive; p- (probably negative): <10% staining; - (negative): clearly negative; NA: not available

For TCR gene (PCR -based TCR gene rearrangement analysis); - (negative): no clonal band on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and no dominant peak on fluorescence capillary electrophoresis; I: inadequate DNA quality for PCR

For clinical course: A: alive; D: death
