Xanthoerythrodermia perstans and alopecia mucinosa in a patient with CD-30 cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
Journal - Cutis; cutaneous medicine for the practitioner (UNITED STATES )
Xanthoerythrodermia perstans (XEP) is a distinctive variant of large-plaque parapsoriasis. Along with alopecia mucinosa and lymphomatoid papulosis, there is a strong association between large-plaque parapsoriasis and evolving cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). In some reports, large-plaque parapsoriasis was suggested to be a precursor lesion that converted to CTCL in 10 to 30 percent of cases. We describe a patient who presented clinically with both XEP and alopecia mucinosa and was subsequently shown to have CD-30 CTCL.
