  • Premalignant states for glioblastoma or Hodgkin lymphoma: we welcome your proposal to identify premalignant states for glioblastoma multiforme or Hodgkin lymphoma based on molecular and not histologic patterns. As described at Arch Pathol Lab Med 2018;142:558, complexity theory suggests that these states likely exist, even if there is no histologic evidence.
