DUQUIA, Rodrigo Pereira et al. Hypopigmented mycosis fungoides with 20 years evolution. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2005, vol.80, n.2, pp.189-191. ISSN 0365-0596.

Hypopigmented mycosis fungoides is a rare variant of the cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, in which hypopigmented lesions are seen without the classical lesions. Only three cases are found in the Latin-American literature. We report the case of a 29-year-old black male patient, who first presented with these lesions 20 years ago. The treatment is similar to the classical forms of the disease: psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) and topical nitrogen mustard are most often used.

Keywords : Phototherapy; Hypopigmentation; Mycosis fungoides.
