RARE PEDIATRIC CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA
We describe a rare case of an adolescent with T-cell cutaneous lymphoma, having a history of intense pruriginous, erythematous and hyperpigmented skin lesions. Several considerations regarding diagnostic work-up and treatment must be emphasized. Erythematous, pruritic patches, unresponsive to common topical/general treatment should raise the suspicion of more serious immuno-allergic or neoplastic conditions, among which, cutaneous lymphoma could be a rare, but a realistic possibility in pediatric field. Long term follow-up by a pediatric haemato-oncologist and dermatologist team is mandatory for these patients.
