Erythroderma is a more or less scaly erythematous rash that affects more than 90% of the body surface area. It is a disease capable of compromising the vital prognosis and that can be complicated by hydroelectrolytic imbalances, thermoregulation disorders, infections, as well as cardiovascular failure. In this publication we refer to the case of a 72-year-old male patient with a history of high blood pressure and leprosy who received polychemotherapy, is admitted to the dermatology service in the observation period, as about a year ago he began to develop redness of the skin and multiple scales. At the time of the examination, an erythrothermal patient, ectropion, important ungueal dystrophy, with axillary and inguinal palpable adenopathies, associated with a widespread intense itching, is observed. Studies are conducted for diagnosis including inguinal and skin node biopsy, the latter compatible with Mycosis Fungoide. Three erythrodermal variants are currently recognized in skin T-cell lymphoma: Sézary syndrome, Erythroderma in fungoid mycosis, and Erythroderma in skin T-cell lymphomas: Undepede. While Sézary syndrome is understood as a leukemia expression of erythrodermal T-cell skin lymphoma, with numerous Sézary cells in skin, blood and other tissues, Erythroderma in fungoid mycosis would be determined in the absence of these same haematological and histological findings before an erythrodermal clinical picture. It is necessary to publish the article by the form of presentation of fungoid mycosis, taking into account that this dermatosis has a number of differential diagnoses that makes it the great simulator in Dermatology.
