Coding Guidelines
Neoplasms (C00-D49)
Note: Functional activity
All neoplasms are classified in this chapter, whether they are functionally active or not. An additional code from Chapter 4 may be used, to identify functional activity associated with any neoplasm.
Morphology [Histology]
Chapter 2 classifies neoplasms primarily by site (topography), with broad groupings for behavior, malignant, in situ, benign, etc. The Table of Neoplasms should be used to identify the correct topography code. In a few cases, such as for malignant melanoma and certain neuroendocrine tumors, the morphology (histologic type) is included in the category and codes.
Primary malignant neoplasms overlapping site boundaries
A primary malignant neoplasm that overlaps two or more contiguous (next to each other) sites should be classified to the subcategory/code .8 ('overlapping lesion'), unless the combination is specifically indexed elsewhere. For multiple neoplasms of the same site that are not contiguous, such as tumors in different quadrants of the same breast, codes for each site should be assigned.
Malignant neoplasm of ectopic tissue
Malignant neoplasms of ectopic tissue are to be coded to the site mentioned, e.g., ectopic pancreatic malignant neoplasms are coded to pancreas, unspecified (C25.9).

Can anyone confirm that the correct code range for cd30+ peripheral t-cell lymphoma would be c84.40-c84.49? I know that c86.6 is the correct code for primary cutaneous cd30+ t-cell lymphoma as well as lymphomatoid papulosis. But i'm trying to find the correct code for cd30+ peripheral t-cell lymphoma and everywhere i research it's leading me in the direction of c84.40-c84.49 but i just want to confirm that and try and find some concrete documentation.
