Lymphocytoma cutis is a pseudolymphoma with an unusual benign evolution. However, it requires treatment, particularly in the multilesional forms, since spontaneous resolution is not a rule and may occur long after the onset of the disease. Six patients affected with the grouped nodules form, received contact X-ray therapy according to Chaoul. Total doses administered ranged from 10 Gy to 30 Gy, delivered at the rate of 1 fraction weekly. The cure rate after a mean folllow-up of 17.6 months was 100%. The cosmetic results were qualitatively good in 100% of cases. No post-treatment complications were observed. These results, together with the high degree of safety offered by modern dermatologic radiotherapy techniques, support radiotherapy as a suitable choice in the treatment of lymphocytoma cutis.
