In most cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), the neoplastic cells are discohesive and grow in a diffuse pattern.

With a pseudocohesive appearance such as that seen in this DLBCL, one should exclude metastatic melanoma, carcinoma or germ cell tumor by doing an appropriate panel of immunohistochemical markers.
