Hydroa Vacciniforme-Like T-Cell Lymphoma: A Further Brazilian Case.

Am J Dermatopathol 2018 Mar;40(3):201-204

Hydroa vacciniforme (HV)-like lymphoma is a rare, usually fatal Epstein-Barr virus-driven lymphoproliferative disease affecting children from Asia, Mexico, and South America. Cutaneous manifestations imitate HV, a benign photodermatosis in which systemic symptoms are not observed, and spontaneous regression occurs later in adolescence or young adulthood. We report a case of HV-like lymphoma in a 12-year-old girl, descendent from an ancient Amazon indigenous tribe that, as far as we know, represents the second Brazilian case ever reported in the medical literature.

Hydroa vacciniforme and hydroa vacciniforme-like T-cell lymphoma: an uncommon event for transformation.

J Cutan Pathol 2016 Dec 9;43(12):1102-1111. Epub 2016 Sep 9.

Department of Dermatology, College of Medicine, National Cheng Kung University and Hospital, Tainan, Taiwan.

Background: Hydroa vacciniforme (HV) is associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and a risk of transformation to lymphoma.

Methods: We retrospectively analyzed six HV cases for EBV association and transformation to HV-like T-cell lymphoma. Clinicopathologic features were reviewed and cases were assessed for EBV-encoded RNA (EBER) by in situ hybridization, double staining with immunohistochemistry and EBER and for T-cell clonality.

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 lymphoma with primarily periorbital swelling: 7 cases of an atypical clinical manifestation of this rare cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

Hydroa vacciniforme-like lymphoma (HVL) is a rare cutaneous T-cell lymphoma that is usually seen in children of Hispanic or Asian origin. Association between chronic latent Epstein-Barr virus infection in both hydroa vacciniforme (HV) and HVL has been demonstrated and has recently been categorized by the World Health Organization as one of the Epstein Barr virus-positive lymphoproliferative disorders of childhood. Patients with HVL present with a cutaneous rash characterized by edema, blisters, ulcers, and scars mainly seen on the face and extremities that mimic HV; however, unlike in HV, the lesions tend to be extensive and deeper and are associated with severe scarring, necrosis, and systemic manifestations.
