Abstract

Peripheral T cell lymphoma (PTCL) is a heterogeneous group of hematological tumors originating from mature T cells, which constitutes less than 15% of all non‑Hodgkins lymphomas in adults. Primary cutaneous PTCL‑not otherwise specified (NOS) represent a subgroup of PTCLs with no consistent immunophenotypic, genetic or clinical features. PTCL‑NOS frequently has an aggressive course with a tendency for systemic involvement, however, a well‑defined therapeutic and prognostic approach has not been outlined yet. We report a case of PTCL‑NOS with multiple cutaneous lesions in a young adult male with an emphasis on the treatment modality used.
