CRUZ CAMEJO, Yaniurka et al. Mycosis fungoide in the tumoral stage. Case presentation. Rev haban cienc méd [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.4, pp.476-485. ISSN 1729-519X.

Introduction: Mycosis Fungoides is a malignant neoplasia originated at T- Lymphocytes of chronic course. It is characterized by lesions that could be macules (erythrodermic, hypo or hyper pigmented), papules, plaques, sometimes poikilodermic patches, nodes or tumours that can be festered arriving occasionally to erythroderma. They use to last in the skin for long periods of time with polymorph lesions though in advanced periods they can affect lymphatic ganglions and internal organs. Despite the fact that Mycosis Fungoides is the most common form among the primary cutaneous lymphomas of T cells (44%) it still qualifies as a rare disease.Objectives: We had as principal aim to review and analyze the available scientific evidence in world literature to determine the most frequent clinical manifestations of Mycosis Fungoides as well as the diagnostic means and treatments mostly used at present. Case presentarion: It's a 49 years old patient with clinical and histopathology finds of Mycosis Fungoides in terminal stage. It is made a brief review of the clinical introduction of this disease, its histopathology and treatment. Conclusions: Mycosis Fungoides is still a rare disease mainly in the early stage, that's why it is very important to make an exact diagnosis of it since it can be diagnosed incorrectly as a contact or atrophic dermatitis.
