Angiocentric lymphoma (also known as "Extranodal natural killer cell lymphoma,"[1] "Nasal-type NK lymphoma,"[1] "NK/T-cell lymphoma,"[1] and "Polymorphic/malignant midline reticulosis"[1]) is a cutaneous condition which in Korea, is reported to be the most common form of cutaneous lymphoma after mycosis fungoides.[2]:739

Extranodal NK-T-cell lymphoma is a type of lymphoma.[3][4][5]

It is called "extranodal" to emphasize that the location is not in the lymph node. It is sometimes further qualified as "nasal type".

It can be associated with Epstein Barr virus.[6][7]
