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

    Departments of *Dermatopathology, and †Dermatology, Universidade Federal do Pará, Brazil.
    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-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 (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.

    Hydroa vacciniforme (HV) is a chronic photosensitivity disorder induced by ultraviolet radiation. Hydroa vacciniforme-like lymphoma is a rare cutaneous T-cell lymphoma occurring mainly in childhood. Recent studies have demonstrated an association between chronic latent Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and both the benign skin disorder and the lymphoma. Read More
