Abstract

Lennert's lymphoma (LL) is a T-cell lymphoma characterized by the presence of atypical T lymphocytes, admixed with histiocytes and epithelioid granulomas. Patients present with superficial lymph node involvement, mainly in the cervical areas; thoracic adenopathies and involvement of deep abdominal lymph nodes are rare. Cutaneous involvement is infrequent, reported to occur in only 4-11% of patients, and even rarer is the onset of cutaneous lesions as first sign of a recurrence. We report a female patient who presented with papules and nodules on the trunk and upper limbs as the first manifestation of recurrent LL.
