Abstract



Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a relatively rare type of lymphoma that represents over half of all cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). An increase in the annual global incidence of MF was observed during the last decades. Clinically, skin lesions of variable forms and dimensions, persistent, or slowly progressive, with the appearance of erythematous macules, plaques, and tumors tend to appear over sun-protected areas. Herein, we report the case of a 21-year-old Romanian female patient presenting with patch stage MF, and discuss clinical, histological and treatment issues in this case.
