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.
