OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the clinical efficacy of topical 5% imiquimod for mycosis fungoides (MF) tumors. BACKGROUND: Treatment of tumor-stage MF represents a therapeutic challenge because of a limited number of effective topical therapies. Single tumors can be treated with localized radiation but may recur. Systemic therapies are also an option but are associated with serious adverse effects. Imiquimod is a topical agent whose efficacy has been documented in treating MF patches and plaques as well as one case of tumor-stage disease...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs) are non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHLs) with considerable variation in incidence across the world. They show a wide variety of clinicopathological features and generally associated with poor clinical outcome. Lymphoma data from different geographic regions will definitely aid in routine clinical practice and research work. PTCLs are reported with a higher frequency in Asia as compared to Western countries. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to analyze the frequency and distribution of PTCLs diagnosed in a tertiary care cancer center in Kerala...

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common type of cutaneous T cell lymphoma. In this study, we used matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (MALDI-FTICR-MS) to perform lipidomic profiling of 5 MF tissue samples and 44 serum samples (22 from MF patients and 22 from control subjects). Multivariate statistical analysis of the mass spectral data showed that MF tissues had altered levels of seven lipids and MF sera had altered levels of twelve. Among these, six phosphotidylcholines, PC (34:2), PC (34:1), PC (36:3), PC (36:2), PC (32:0), and PC (38:4) and one sphingomyelin, SM (16:0) were altered in both MF tissues and sera...

Folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF), a variant of mycosis fungoides (MF) with distinct clinical features, is characterized by infiltration of malignant T cells in hair follicles. This raises the hypothesis that antigens in the hair follicle may contribute to the pathogenesis of FMF. T-cell receptor β gene (TRB) sequences as well as dendritic cell subsets in patients with FMF (n = 21) and control patients with MF (n = 20) were studied to explore this hypothesis. A recurrent usage of the TRB junctional genes TRBJ2-1 and TRBJ2-7 was found in patients with FMF compared with those with MF...

Bernengo et al. reported that >30% CD4(+)CD26(-) lymphocytes detect blood involvement in patients with mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome. In addition, the ISCL/EORTC suggested that this threshold might serve as a criterion for the B2 blood rating for staging. In this manuscript, we report our experience with measurement of CD4(+)CD26(-) and CD4(+)CD7(-) cells, Sézary cell counts, and aberrant T cells with diminished expression of CD2, CD3, or CD5 antigens. CD4(+)CD26(-) ≥30% occurred in 15 of 373 (4...

Phototherapy is a useful noninvasive therapy, but it can induce cutaneous malignant tumours, including squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC). We report on a 79-year-old man who had long-standing mycosis fungoides for 40 years, which had been treated with psoralen ultraviolet A therapy for 37 years at a dose of approximately 5000 J/cm(2) . Approximately 6 years before presentation, numerous types of cutaneous malignancies, including actinic keratosis, BCC and SCC, had begun to develop all over the patient's body...

Psoriasis is a complex, chronic immune-mediated inflammatory disease that most commonly presents as well-demarcated erythematous plaques with micaceous scale, affecting roughly 3-4% of the US population [1-4]. Clinically, lesions are often well demarcated thick, scaly, erythematous plaques, characteristically located on the extensor surfaces, such as elbows and knees [1]. In most cases, clinical impression is sufficient to diagnose psoriasis. However, sometimes psoriasis can mimic other cutaneous disorders and biopsy may be warranted to discover the diagnosis...

Unilesional mycosis fungoides is a rare cutaneous T cell lymphoma that warrants either radiation therapy or surgical excision. Benign characteristics result in misdiagnosis, delayed tissue biopsy and subsequently delayed provision of adequate treatment. A young patient presented with a history of 18 months of eczematous benign - appearing single lesion restricted to her index finger. Local electron-beam radiation following tissue diagnosis resulted in full recovery.

A 26-year-old female presented with 4-years duration of asymptomatic spots on her left leg. She was otherwise healthy. On examination several purpuric patches up to 3 cm. in diameter were found on the flexure aspect of her left leg. Histological examination revealed lymphocytic infiltrate, with mild atypia, with red blood cell extravasation and hemosiderin deposition in the papillary dermis. The clinical and histological findings were compatible with the diagnosis of early stage purpuric mycosis fungoides (MF)...

Folliculotropic mycosis fungoides (FMF) is a distinct variant of mycosis fungoides (MF) where atypical T-cells invade the hair follicles. The objective was to assess the clinical features, risk factors for progression, long-term outcome and response to treatment modalities in a large cohort of FMF patients. We, therefore, conducted a single-center retrospective study, reviewing 114 patients with FMF seen from 1987 to 2015 at the cutaneous T-cell lymphoma clinic of the MD Anderson Cancer Center. The mean age at diagnosis of FMF was 57...
