Abstract

Nine patients with stage IV mycosis fungoides (MF), according to TNM classification, were treated with cyclosphosphamide, vincristine, and prednisone (CVP). CVP induced a 66% overall objective response rate and a 44% complete response rate, which is the highest reported in the literature. CVP is an effective regimen in MF and could be employed in combination with total skin or total lymphoid radiotherapy. TNM classification should be used for all patients with MF, because it makes the evaluation and comparison of treatments more reliable.
