Abstract

Primary cutaneous lymphomas (PCLs) are a group of lymphoid neoplasms provided with heterogeneous clinical, histological, immunohistochemical and molecular features. They can be classified in two groups: cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) and cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (CBCLs). Recent studies show an increase of the incidence of PCLs over the last three decades. Our aim is to evaluate the commonest types of PCL analysing the clinical characteristics, histology, phenotype, molecular biology, prognosis and therapy.
