Lymphomatoid papulosis is a clinically benign, but histologically malignant form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Regular surveillance is warranted to monitor development of another systemic lymphoma. We report a case of lymphomatoid papulosis, presenting as widespread papulonecrotic skin lesions. The patient developed multiple asymptomatic, self-healing lesions over the trunk and proximal limbs which resolved spontaneously within 3 months.
