The term mycosis fungoides was first used by the French dermatologist Baron Jean-Louis Alibert (1768-1837). He suggested that name because the skin lesions had mushroom-like appearance. Working ceaseless with both patients and collaborators, Alibert brought fame to the Parisian Saint-Louis Hospital as a worldwide training center of dermatology, founding thus the French School of Dermatology.
