: Mycosis fungoides (MF) displays a broad spectrum of clinical, histological, and phenotypic variants with different prognostic impact. CD8CD56 MF is very rare. So far, only 5 patients with CD8CD56 MF were reported to date. All of the previously described patients with this phenotypic variant were adults at the time of diagnosis and often manifested with widespread poikilodermatous skin lesions. Here we describe the clinicopathological features of a juvenile form of CD8CD56 non-poikilodermatous MF in a 10-year-old girl. In our patient, the disease displayed an indolent course and excellent prognosis with complete remission after treatment with UV light, topical steroids, and methotrexate. The differential diagnosis of CD8 epidermotropic lymphocytic infiltrates in children is discussed, and the cases of CD8CD56 MF reported in the literature are reviewed.
