Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a case of a 69-year-old gentleman who presented with a 3-month history of unexplained fevers and malaise who developed generalized pruritus, alopecia and an ichthyosiform erythematous eruption on his forearms, legs, chest and back. Skin histology, immunophenotyping and molecular features were consistent with granulomatous mycosis fungoides. He has been successfully treated with twice weekly PUVA photochemotherapy.
