BACKGROUND: Woringer-Kolopp (W-K) disease is a rare, localized, histologically malignant, but clinically indolent lymphoproliferative disorder. Most authors have regarded W-K disease as a variant of mycosis fungoides. However, a recent case suggests that W-K disease may represent a spectrum of lymphoproliferative disorders that may not be related to mycosis fungoides. ...
