A 45-year-old female patient discussed herein had a multifocal, alopecia areata of inflammatory character. Histological findings first suggested histiocyte cytophagic panniculitis, although a "burned-out" panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma could not be excluded. After a two-year follow-up period assessment of the T-cell receptor gene rearrangement verified the diagnosis of subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma. This case is interesting because of its isolated manifestation and a long-standing, benign course of the disease.
