- The symptoms of mycosis fungoides usually develop as non-specific, indolent inflammation such as etopic dermatitis, nonspecific chronic dermatitis, or parapsoriasis ( large-plaque parapsoriasis).
- The majority of patients have early stage (77.9% : IA stage IA 38.8%, stage IB 39.1% ), and patients with stage IIB diagnosed in 5.5% and stage III observed in 6.6%. The majority of patients of mycosis fungoides are not diagnosed and end stage not be observed.
- Mycosis fungoides in early stage is characterized by non-specific dermatitis or consistent patches observed on the lower trunk and buttocks.
- Mycosis fungoides initiates as an indolent lymphoma that may later develop peripheral lymphadenopathy and may finally progress to widespread visceral involvement.
- Patients often have a history of several years of eczematous or dermatitis skin lesions before the diagnosis is finally established.
- The skin lesions then progress from the patch stage to the plaque stage to cutaneous tumors.
- Common complications of mycosis fungoides include:
- Mycosis Fungoides increases risk of secondary malignancies such as primary malignancy, especially Hodgkin lymphoma, chronic leukemia, and lung cancer.
- Neurologic involvement (intracerebral mycosis fungoides)
- Oral involvement
- Hypersensitivity reaction with topical HN2 therapy
- Hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation of treated areas
- Cutaneous T cell lymphoma is usually a slow-growing (indolent) lymphoma.
- The prognosis for people with cutaneous T cell lymphoma is based on the extent of disease and how the person responds to treatment.
- Although more advanced stages of cutaneous T cell lymphoma may not be cured, the lymphoma can still be controlled with treatment
