Front Oncol 2022 7;12:884091. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

First Dept. of Internal Medicine - Hematology, University General Hospital in Prague and First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, Prague, Czechia.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) represent rare non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHL) with an incidence less than 1 per 100,000 inhabitants. The most common type of CTCL is mycosis fungoides (MF), which represents approximately 60% of all CTCL, followed by Sézary syndrome (SS), approximately 5%. We retrospectively analyzed the outcome of 118 patients with MF (n=96) and SS (n=22) treated between the years 1998 and 2021 at the Charles University General Hospital in Prague, Czech Republic.

Combined High-Throughput Approaches Reveal the Signals Driven by Skin and Blood Environments and Define the Tumor Heterogeneity in Sézary Syndrome.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Jun 9;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 9.

Istituto Dermopatico dell'Immacolata, IDI-IRCCS, Via dei Monti di Creta, 104, 00167 Rome, Italy.

Sézary syndrome (SS) is an aggressive variant of cutaneous t-cell lymphoma characterized by the accumulation of neoplastic CD4+ lymphocytes-the SS cells-mainly in blood, lymph nodes, and skin. The tumor spread pattern of SS makes this lymphoma a unique model of disease that allows a concurrent blood and skin sampling for analysis. This review summarizes the recent studies highlighting the transcriptional programs triggered by the crosstalk between SS cells and blood-skin microenvironments. Read More

HTLV, a multi organ oncovirus.

Microb Pathog 2022 Jun 7:105622. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Inflammation and Inflammatory Diseases Research Center, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Iran. Electronic address:

Human T lymphotropic virus (HTLV-I) is a retrovirus that has been recognized as a causative agent of two crucidal diseases, HTLV-I-Associated Myelopathy/Tropical Spastic Paraparesis (HAM/TSP) and Adult T cell Leukemia-Lymphoma (ATLL). The virus not only induces those diseases in a small proportion of HTLV-I carriers (3-5%) but also it is associated with other diseases such as HTLV-I-Associated Arthropathy (HAAP), Cutaneous T Cell Lymphoma (CTCL), Graves' disease, uveitis, polymyositis, chronic respiratory diseases, lymphadenitis and dermatitis. Furthermore, HTLV related and accelerated disorders were more investigated, and the factors that might implicate in the development or progression of diseases have been discussed. Read More

CD4/CD8 double-negative mycosis fungoides with large cell transformation and involvement of the lungs and leptomeninges.

Dermatol Online J 2022 Mar 15;28(2). Epub 2022 Mar 15.

The University of Texas Health Science Center, McGovern Medical School, Houston, Texas, USA,.

Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, classically has an indolent clinical course, with lesions slowly progressing from patch to plaque to tumor stage. In some cases, the late stages of disease involve extra-cutaneous dissemination to lymph nodes or viscera. Although this "Alibert-Bazin" type is the prototypic MF, there are several variants and subtypes of MF that may have different clinical implications for treatment and prognosis. Read More

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell Lymphoma Mimicking DRESS Syndrome.

Cutis 2022 Mar;109(3):E29-E32

Department of Dermatology, Naval Medical Center, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a rare and aggressive lymphoma arising from follicular T-helper cells. Cutaneous findings and nonspecific systemic symptoms often associated with this malignancy can closely resemble those of more common entities, such as a viral exanthem or drug eruption, depending on the history and context. These similarities in presentation to more common entities can cause a delay in the diagnosis of AITL and subsequent initiation of treatment, which has considerable implications for morbidity and mortality.

Morphology of Mycosis Fungoides and Sézary Syndrome in Skin of Color.

Cutis 2022 Mar;109(3):E3-E7

Department of Dermatology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois.

Although mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SS) commonly affect Black patients, dermatologic educational resources primarily describe the appearance of these conditions in lighter skin types. Skin of color (SoC) patients with Fitzpatrick skin types (FSTs) IV to VI tend to have variable morphologies compared to the erythematous patches, plaques, or tumors in non-sun-exposed areas seen in non-SoC patients (FSTs I-III). We performed a single-institution review of clinical photographs of patients with FSTs I to VI with the primary outcome of determining the frequency of various morphologic features of MF/SS in SoC vs non-SoC patients.
