CD5 is expressed normally on all T cells (one of the pan T-cell antigens). It can be aberrantly expressed by B-cell lymphomas (most commonly mantle cell lymphoma, B-cell small lymphocytic lymphoma). Expression of CD5 is useful to support T-cell lineage in T-cell lymphomas, or to help subclassify B-cell lymphomas.
