Abstract

Lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP) and primary cutaneous anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) are grouped under the category of cutaneous T-cell lymphomas as CD30+ lymphoproliferative disorders. Though LyP is clinically characterized by chronic recurrent papulonodular cutaneous lesions, it shows malignant features on the histologic findings. LyP is associated with lymphomas, including primary cutaneous ALCL, mycosis fungoides and other lymphoproliferative disorders. A few cases of LyP related to ALCL have been reported in Korea. We report here on an interesting case of primary cutaneous ALCL that developed in succession after LyP in a 38-year-old female.
