Dermoscopy of Pagetoid reticulosis, with dermoscopic-pathologic correlation.

Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed 2019 Apr 21. Epub 2019 Apr 21.

First Dermatology Department, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.

Pagetoid reticulosis (PR), also known as Woringer-Kolopp disease, is a rare variant of mycosis fungoides with distinctive clinicopathologic features. It clinically manifests as a solitary, erythematous, gradually enlarging, scaly or verrucous plaque on the lower extremities, and due to its indolent course and non-specific clinical features, may remain undiagnosed for years. In the current we describe the clinical and dermoscopic characteristics of a rare case of PR disease, and correlate them with the corresponding histopathologic findings. Read More

Ingenol mebutate for mycosis fungoides.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Apr 20. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Zurich, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

Ingenol mebutate is a macrocyclic diterpene ester, naturally found in the sap of the Australian plant Euphorbia peplus, which proved efficacious for actinic keratosis. In clinical routine, we observed local improvement of MF upon application of ingenol mebutate in MF patients treated for coincidental actinic keratosis within direct proximity of/overlapping with MF skin lesions. Hence, the objective of this study was to assess the effect of topical ingenol mebutate on MF skin lesions. Read More

A Pediatric Case of Transformed Mycosis Fungoides in a BRCA2 Positive Patient.

J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Children's National Medical Center, Washington, DC.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas are very rare in children. Although mycosis fungoides is the most common of these rare cutaneous T-cell lymphomas in children, transformation to an aggressive malignancy remains extremely uncommon, and there are no clear guidelines for clinical management in the pediatric population. In addition, the increased usage of next-generation sequencing for pediatric patients with unusual malignancies may result in the discovery of pathogenic germline mutations, though the association between these mutations and the patient's cancer is not always clear.

Clonotypic heterogeneity in cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (mycosis fungoides) revealed by comprehensive whole-exome sequencing.

Blood Adv 2019 Apr;3(7):1175-1184

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, and.

Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, is believed to represent a clonal expansion of a transformed skin-resident memory T cell. T-cell receptor (TCR) clonality (ie, identical sequences of rearranged TCRα, TCRβ, and TCRγ), the key premise of this hypothesis, has been difficult to document conclusively because malignant cells are not readily distinguishable from the tumor-infiltrating reactive lymphocytes that contribute to the TCR clonotypic repertoire of MF. Here, we have successfully adopted targeted whole-exome sequencing (WES) to identify the repertoire of rearranged TCR genes in tumor-enriched samples from patients with MF. Read More

Management of mycosis fungoides-type cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (MF-CTCL): focus on chlormethine gel.

Cancer Manag Res 2019 20;11:2241-2251. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Dermatology Department, Centre Hospitalier Le Mans, Le Mans, France,

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a low-grade cutaneous lymphoma accounting for more than half of primary cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs). Due to the rarity of CTCL, randomized studies are lacking, and treatment is based mainly on the recent published European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer guidelines. Basically, early-stage MF is treated with skin-directed treatments, whereas advanced-stage MF requires more aggressive therapies. Read More

Mycosis Fungoides Associated With Lesions in the Spectrum of Primary Cutaneous CD30+ Lymphoproliferative Disorders: The Same Process or 3 Coexisting Lymphomas?

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Mar 29. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Departments of Dermatology.

Mycosis fungoides (MF) is the most common type of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, primary cutaneous CD30 lymphoproliferative disorders (pc CD30 LPD) being the second most prevalent. There is evidence that MF and pc CD30 LPD may coexist and share T-cell clonality, suggesting a common origin. These findings were supported by a T-cell receptor clonality assessment by the polymerase chain reaction coupled with capillary electrophoresis, although results produced by this method may be ambiguous.

Syringotropic Mycosis Fungoides: A Variant of Folliculotropic Mycosis Fungoides or a Distinct Entity?

Am J Dermatopathol 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC.

Syringotropic mycosis fungoides (MF) is classified under folliculotropic MF. Although there is significant overlap between the 2, this study demonstrates that folliculotropism is frequently present in syringotropic MF, and when not present, the specimen did not include a follicle to examine. In addition, few of the pathology reports mentioned folliculotropism or syringotropism, although this is an important prognostic feature. Read More

Dendritic cell distribution in mycosis fungoides vs. inflammatory dermatosis and other T-cell skin lymphoma.

Oncol Lett 2019 May 1;17(5):4055-4059. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Pathology, Colentina University Hospital, 020125 Bucharest, Romania.

Dendritic cells (DCs) are antigen-presenting cells with an important role in the innate and adaptive immune system. In skin lesions, cutaneous DCs (Langerhans cells, dermal DCs and plasmacytoid DCs) are involved in immune activation in inflammatory benign lesions, as well as in malignant lymphoid proliferations. Density and distribution of DCs in the dermal infiltrate can be helpful to differentiate benign, reactive infiltrate from malignant nature of the lymphoid population. Read More

Existing and Emerging Therapies for Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma.

J Cutan Med Surg 2019 Apr 3:1203475419840629. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

1 Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCL) are a heterogeneous group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas characterized by an infiltration of malignant monoclonal T lymphocytes into the skin. Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common subtype, and the rarer Sézary syndrome (SS), are considered the classical forms of CTCL, which, because of a varying presentation and lack of genetic and immunophenotypical markers, can often have a delayed diagnosis. With skin-directed topical treatment being the mainstay of therapy in the early stages, there is an absence of long-term curative therapies for advanced disease. Read More

Clonotypic diversity of the T-cell receptor corroborates the immature precursor origin of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

Clin Cancer Res 2019 Feb 26. Epub 2019 Feb 26.

department of Dermatology, Bispebjerg Hospital.

Purpose: Mycosis fungoides (MF) is one of the most common types of extranodal T-cell lymphomas, considered to be caused by malignant transformation of the mature T-cell residing in the skin. However, some clinical observations such as the multifocal distribution of MF lesions or patterns of relapse after radiotherapy are not readily explainable by the mature T-cell origin theory.

Experimental Design: We have performed a detailed analysis of T-cell receptor (TCR) rearrangements in single malignant cells and in biopsies from MF tumors composed of >80% of malignant cells using next-generation sequencing (NGS) to pinpoint the relationship between neoplastic cells in MF.

Section of Pediatric Dermatology, Departments of Dermatology and Pediatrics, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Immunosuppression following organ transplantation is a known risk factor for the development of lymphoproliferative disorders. Mycosis fungoides, a rare entity in pediatric patients, has seldom been reported as a post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder. We report a case of folliculotropic mycosis fungoides in a pediatric patient following liver transplantation that was initially diagnosed as tinea capitis. Read More

Department of Radiation Oncology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, United States. Electronic address:

Background And Purpose: A lower proportion of CD8+ tumor infiltrating lymphocytes in mycosis fungoides (MF) patients is associated with worse survival. However, it is not known whether circulating CD4:CD8 ratio is a prognosticator of response to total skin electron beam therapy (TSEBT).

Methods And Materials: We identified 126 MF patients treated with TSEBT from 2001 to 20014 at two high-volume academic centers. Read More

Progression of mycosis fungoides occurs through divergence of tumor immunophenotype by differential expression of HLA-DR.

Blood Adv 2019 Feb;3(4):519-530

Instititute of Immunology and Immunotherapy, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, United Kingdom; and.

Immunotherapy is a valuable treatment for many cancer patients, and there is considerable interest in understanding the mechanisms of immune evasion to guide appropriate management. Mycosis fungoides (MF) is a malignant disorder of skin-homing CD4 T cells, and it exhibits a highly variable clinical course during which the tumor-specific immune response may be an important determinant. An unusual feature of MF is that tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) must attempt to control a malignant cell from within their own lineage. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Los Angeles Medical Center (LAMC), Southern California Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles, California.

Introduction: Granulomatous mycosis fungoides (MF) is a rare variant in which granulomas are associated with other typical signs of MF. Its prognosis is worse than that of classical MF. Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (PDCs) are a subset of interferon-producing dendritic cells that link the innate and the adaptative immune responses. Read More

Lymphoprolipherative skin reactions induced by anti-TNFα: an open question.

J Dermatolog Treat 2019 Feb 27:1-4. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

a 1st Department of Dermatology "Andreas Syggros" Hospital , Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens , Athens , Greece.

Although anti-TNFα agents have revolutionized the treatment of many inflammatory diseases, various concerns have been reported regarding the risks of cancer development, as well as acceleration of the progression of subclinical, preexisting malignancies. In this case series, we investigated the provocative effect of anti-TNFα drugs in the development of cutaneous mycosis fungoides (MF)-like lymphoproliferative reactions. We describe five patients aged between 25-63 diagnosed with autoimmune disorders (psoriatic arthritis - one patient, Crohn's disease - one patient and ankylosing spondylitis - three patients) who received anti-TNFα agents before the development of a cutaneous lymphoproliferative reaction.
