Folliculotropic mycosis fungoides in a pediatric patient with response to psoralen-ultraviolet A phototherapy.Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed. 2019 Jan; 35(1):54-56.PP
Mycosis Fungoides is the most common cutaneous T-cell lymphoma however, it is rare in children. We present the case of a Folliculotropic Mycosis Fungoides in a 13-year-old boy which initially presented as a plaque on his face and was treated with local PUVA therapy. Afterwards the lesions spread so the treatment was changed to systemic PUVA with good response. Although the experience in the treatment of Mycosis Fungoides in pediatric patients is limited, PUVA therapy seems to be an effective and safe option.
