ROCHA, Vanessa Barreto; CARVALHO, Saôny Victor de; ARAUJO, Marcelo Grossi  and  GUEDES, Antônio Carlos Martins. Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma simulating Lepromatous Leprosy. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2003, vol.78, n.3, pp.361-365. ISSN 0365-0596.

The authors report a case of a 28-year-old woman with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, first diagnosed as multibacillary leprosy. The differential diagnosis is discussed, with emphasis on leprosy, since there were similarities in the clinical aspects. Furthermore the histopathological findings were unusual, displaying perineural and periannexal inflammatory infiltrate composed of mononuclear cells.

Keywords : diagnosis; diagnosis [differential]; leprosy; lymphoma [non-Hodgkin].
