Abstract

Granulomatous mycosis fungoides (MF) is an unusual type of MF, characterised by granulomatous infiltration. Since both primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma and large cell transformation of MF may involve CD30+ lymphocytes, it is hard to differentiate between them. However, it is important to make a definitive diagnosis due to the different prognoses. Herein, we present a rare type of MF that was initially misdiagnosed, and was coexistent with primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma.

肉芽腫性蕈狀肉芽腫是不常見的蕈狀肉芽腫類型,其特徵是肉芽腫浸潤。由於原發性皮膚間變性大細胞淋巴瘤和蕈狀肉芽腫的大細胞轉化皆可能涉及CD30陽性淋巴細胞,區分有一定難度。但由於各自預後不同,明確的診斷不容易視。在這裡,我們介紹了一種罕見的蕈狀肉芽腫,它最初曾被誤診,並且與原發性皮膚間變性大細胞淋巴瘤並存。
