    Hi Jim,

    We’ve received an inquiry about this edit failing for primary site: Ocular Adnexal Lymphoma (C695), histology code (9699). The facility’s vendor software will only allow “88” for Stage Group (or blank, which causes other edits to fail). Admin notes in this edit’s description state that v16D added “99” as a valid Stage Group for this site/histology but I noticed it omits “88” in the Stage Group options in the document. AJCC Ed 7, page 585, states “No stage grouping is presently recommended” for this site. Is there something we are missing in our interpretation of this edit?

    Thanks for your help,

    Hi Ardis,
    This is situation where SEER and NPCR/CoC are asking for different things. I think you probably want the NPCR version of this edit in your state edit set Primary Site, Stage Group 2016 – Ed 7 (NPCR).

    The NPCR and COC stage edits only allow 88 for stage group for ocular adnexal lymphoma. SEER requires that this be staged as a lymphoma, allows 1, 1A,1B,2,2A,2B,3,3A,3B,4,4A,4B,99 for stage group.
