We report the case of a 61-year-old woman who developed an anaplastic CD30+ cutaneous T-cell lymphoma during oral cyclosporine (CsA) therapy for recalcitrant psoriasis. Two months after CsA discontinuation, clinical and histological resolution of the lymphoma was observed. However, 3 years later extracutaneous involvement of the lymphoma could be detected. The association between CsA administration and the occurrence of the lymphoma may be casual, but a relationship with immunosuppression may also be hypothesized. We have reviewed all relevant data in the literature. To our knowledge, this is the first case of primary cutaneous CD30+ anaplastic large T-cell lymphoma in a patient treated with CsA for psoriasis.
