We describe the case of a 17-year-old Hispanic boy who had had erythroderma and diffuse lymphadenopathy for approximately 6 months. A diagnosis of Sézary syndrome was made on the basis of the histologic features of the skin; the presence of the same T-cell clone on the skin, blood, and bone marrow; and the high CD4+ lymphocyte count with an aberrant phenotype in peripheral blood; bone marrow involvement was also present. The patient was treated with systemic gemcitabine and achieved partial remission.
