Abstract

TABLADA ROBINET, María Elena et al. Clinical and epidemiological characteristics of patients with mycosis fungoides. MEDISAN [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.2, pp.205-210. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive, retrospective and cross-sectional study of the 15 patients with mycosis fungoides, admitted in the Dermatology Service of "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital in Santiago de Cuba was carried out from January, 2004 to December, 2012, with the objective of determining the clinical and epidemiological manifestations of the disease, for which the variables age, sex, skin color, predominant skin lesions, clinical course duration and clinical stage at the moment of the diagnosis were analyzed. After evaluating the results of the series, it was concluded that difficulties existed to diagnose the clinical entity because there were not the necessary means, which would decrease the period of the clinical course between the emergence of the symptoms and the confirmation of the presence of this dermopathy.

Keywords : mycosis fungoide; T cell lymphoma; Dermatology Service; secondary health care.
