A practical approach to accurate classification and staging of mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome.Skin Therapy Lett. 2012 Dec; 17(10):5-9.ST
Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas are rare, distinct forms of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. Of which, mycosis fungoides (MF) and Sézary syndrome (SS) are two of the most common forms. Careful, clear classification and staging of these lymphomas allow dermatologists to commence appropriate therapy and allow correct prognostic stratification for those patients affected. Of note, patients with more advanced disease will require multi-disciplinary input in determining specialist therapy. Literature has been summarized into an outline for classification/staging of MF and SS with the aim to provide clinical dermatologists with a concise review.
