Papuloerythroderma has been described as a distinct clinical entity. It is characterized by pruritus, red flat-topped papules with skin crease sparing, blood eosinophilia and lymphopenia. It has been described almost exclusively in elderly men. We report a case of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma which, at presentation, was indistinguishable from papuloerythroderma, in a 79-year-old male. An excellent clinical response to low dose oral corticosteroids and photochemotherapy was observed. There have only been two previous reports linking papuloerythroderma with T-cell lymphoma. This patient is in keeping with the two previously reported cases and would support the view that papuloerythroderma may predispose to, or in fact represent, an early form of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
