Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mycosis fungoides (MF) presenting in the genitalia is rare. We report a case of long-standing penile MF in a young man. Commonly used treatments for limited plaque MF include topical corticosteroids and ultraviolet light therapy. There are a few anecdotal reports on the use of topical imiquimod in MF. Our patient responded well and remained in complete remission after treatment with topical imiquimod.
