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.

Hydroa vacciniforme-like lymphoma and extranodal-type natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma are prototypes of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated cutaneous T- or NK-cell lymphomas. Hydroa vacciniforme-like lymphoma with systemic spread and extranodal-type NK/T-cell lymphoma are characterized by aggressive clinical course. We describe 2 patients with primary cutaneous EBV-associated T-cell lymphomas who did not satisfy the criteria for well-defined entities and showed unusual, prolonged clinical course. Read More

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
