Abstract

Follicular lesions can either associate with typical patch-/plaque-type mycosis fungoides or, more rarely, be the only clinical manifestation of the disease. We describe 2 adult patients who presented with alopecia and disseminated follicular erythematous papules, and comedones and cysts, respectively. In both patients, histology showed a folliculotropic infiltrate of atypical lymphocytes that spared the epidermis, in the absence of follicular mucinosis. Molecular genetic analysis confirmed the oligo/monoclonal nature of the T-cell infiltrate. Reported cases of purely follicular mycosis fungoides without mucinosis are reviewed.
