Hydroa vacciniforme-like cutaneous lymphoma is a rare type of Epstein-Barr virus-associated lymphoma. We analyze clinicopathologic features of seven Chinese child patients with hydroa vacciniforme-like cutaneous lymphoma and determine the pathogenic association of Epstein-Barr virus with this disorder. Clinical, histologic, and immunohistochemical features were reviewed. Read More

Hydroa vacciniforme-like cutaneous lymphoma is a very rare Epstein-Barr virus positive peripheral T-cell lymphoma affecting Asian and Hispanic children and young adults with a defective cytotoxic immune response to EBV predisposing to the development of the disease. We report on 2 Ecuadorian patients with papulovesicular and ulcerated crusted lesions on the face, upper and lower extremities and abdomen, with aggressive clinical course and, in one case, a fatal outcome. The histological and molecular profiles (immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization) established a diagnosis of hydroa vacciniforme-like Epstein-Barr virus-encoded small RNAs + cutaneous T-cell lymphoma in both cases.

Primary cutaneous hydroa vacciniforme (HV)-like lymphoma is a rare, Epstein-Barr virus-associated cutaneous neoplasm characterized by photosensitive papulovesicular eruption and usually associated with poor prognosis. This report presents 2 cases of primary cutaneous HV-like lymphoma with unusual indolent clinical course and favorable prognosis during the follow-up periods of 2 and 3 years, respectively. Both patients presented with erythema, papulovesicles, scars, ulcerations, and edema on the face and extremities. Read More
