    Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences, University Hospital of St. Pölten, St. Pölten, Austria -
    Mycosis fungoides (MF), the most common variant of among cutaneous T cell lymphomas (CTCL), is characterised in its early stages by clonal proliferation of malignant T-cells in the skin manifesting as erythematous patches and plaques with a chronic course and progression to cutaneous tumors and extracutaneous organs in some patients. Skin directed therapies (SDT) are primarily used for effective palliation in early stage disease. Phototherapy with ultraviolet A radiation combined with 8-methoxypsoralen (PUVA) and with ultraviolet B radiation (UVB) has a longstanding history in the treatment of MF and are highly effective in inducing remissions.
