Description:Running a differential diagnostic investigation on a suspected syphilis patient revealed that this patient’s cutaneous lesions were due to a condition known as mycosis fungoides, a T-cell non-Hodgkins lymphoma that arises in the skin.
Mycosis fungoides, also known as Alibert-Bazin syndrome or granuloma fungoides, is a rare form of cutaneous T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma that usually affects the skin, but can migrate internally over time. Though the name means “mushroom-like fungal disease”, it is not caused by a fungus, but rather a form of blood cancer, which is derived from lymphocytes.
