Historical Perspective

  • Mycosis Fungoides was first described in 1806 by French dermatologist Jean-Louis-Marc Alibert.[1][2][3]
  • Mycosis fungoides is unrelated to any fungal infection. The term fungoides was first used by Dr. Jean-Louis-Marc Alibert to describe the tumor as having a mushroom-like appearance.[4]
