Abstract

Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas involving the scalp and determining scarring alopecias are difficult to be followed up during treatment because of the peculiar anatomical site of onset. In vivo reflectance confocal microscopy has already been reported to be useful for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma evaluation and for therapeutic follow-up in inflammatory skin conditions. We describe a case of a 26-year-old man affected by cutaneous T-cell lymphoma affecting the scalp in which reflectance confocal microscopy demonstrated to be useful for in vivo evaluation of the therapeutic response to topical and systemic treatment.
